A young woman sits down with forty of her closest friends from three different countries, different ethnicities, sexual identities and professions and asks them one simple question: "How do you feel about food?"
FOODIE is a verbatim play about young women's relationships with food, from the divine to the obscene.
The Writer presents, for your delectation, the most intimate of conversations between girlfriends.
And once she gets these women talking, it's difficult to get them to stop.
Food is fuel. Food is family.
Food is heritage. Food is self-expression.
Food is love. Food is evil. Food is scary. Food is art. Food is comfort.
Food is necessary to human life.
A woman's body makes food.
Over coffees and cakes, wine and takeaway curries, tequila and nachos these women devour the subject of what they put in their mouths.
Some choose to be identified by their real names - others use a pseudonym to express publicly what those closest to them may never know.
But there is one friend who doesn't want to speak, who avoids her phone calls.
And The Writer is left to question, has she let food get in the way of their friendship again?
