The Food Chain (1996)

[cast list] [director] [author] [reviews]

Straight from Off-Broadway, this uproarious, smash hit about uncontrollable desire spotlights five urbanites searching for connection. This award-winning comedy hilariously examines our preoccupation with food, sex, looks and fashion. In classic Silver style the playwright describes the food chain:

"It's like there are two happy people in every high school - the head cheerleader and the football quarterback, and the rest of us just sit on the sidelines picking our noses and eating."

In The Food Chain, Nicky Silver's wildly wicked, award-winning wit skewers America's obsession with beauty.
