In the raw, ever-pumping, kitchen of a busy Wall Street restaurant, George -- a master chef with a dark and tortured past -- rules over his crew with the swagger of a giant.  While grappling his  inner demons George has to manage two Guatemalan cooks, a nosy busboy, and an a-hole of a boss. But he forges an unlikely personal connection with the dishwasher, Steve, a mysteriously reserved  African immigrant.  Fast-paced and gritty, Snider’s pressure-cooker drama explores both the personal and moral questions that arise when the ugliness of the past boils over.

AUDIENCE DISCUSSIONS:
 We are scheduling brief optional (20-30 minute) audience discussion sessions in the theatre after every performance during the run (in addition to our usual coffee conversations and Speaker Sunday events). These discussions will be facilitated by local theatre artists and are included as an opportunity for our InterAct audiences to talk about what they experienced during the performance and connect about the themes this play reflects. 

Think of the discussion as a short optional interactive second act.
