Who really cooks your meal? TeAda brings you tantalizing and provocative tales from LA’s restaurant scene. In stark contrast to cooking shows on reality T.V., this new ensemble theater performanceuncovers the untold experiences in the kitchens and dining rooms of today's restaurants. This multicultural ensemble mixes together a series of tasty images, stories, and mythology from the front and back of the house*, with a healthy dose of worker and immigrant perspective. Delicious Reality is a collaboration with TeAda Productions and two local organizations Restaurant Opportunity Center Los Angeles (ROC-LA) and Southeast Asian Community Alliance (SEACA).
*”Front and back of the House” is a term used in both restaurants and theater. “Front of the House” meaning the dining room, or the audience. “Back of the House” meaning kitchen or backstage.
