Let’s Eat performs a family dinner style monoscene. The troupe was formed out of a workshop covering an abridged version of the form. Amechi, Jessica and Laura were all present and all really enjoyed the slower exploration of what it means to be a family. They brought on Antoine to complete the power quartet and have been performing together ever since. As a troupe, Let’s Eat focuses on well-developed characters and exploring relationships within the world and with each other. Their shows often build as they organically discover things within the single scene, and they are always pushing themselves to discover new ways in which families interact.
