Knives, like ’em sharp.

On a stretch of Australian highway, two sisters run a takeaway joint – their days heavy with Chiko Rolls and memories. While they quietly wage war with their past and wrangle with each other about how to map out their future, a young traveller arrives and brings with him a charm and sensuality that turns their world around.

Originally produced in the intimacy of Belvoir’s Downstairs Theatre, Food is an evocative mix of words and movement that will surprise and stir in equal parts.

Writer/Director Steve Rodgers is a theatrical marvel who writes and acts with equal aplomb. Co-director Kate Champion is riding the wave of a decade of brilliant work across theatre, opera and dance, notably with her celebrated company Force Majeure.
