A blisteringly funny play about what we eat and who we love, exploring class, queerness, cultural appropriation and the cost of gentrification.
Lori is a chef. Bex waits tables. One night in a walk-in fridge and the rest is history.
Lori wants to teach Bex about the finer things in life, but what’s the point when the system is rigged? After all, no-one on minimum wage has headspace to make their own yoghurt.
‘You want to swoop in and whisk me off to this brave new world of matcha powder and sourdough and reclaimed floorboards. And what if I’m happy as I am?’
