“We started performing together back in ’96,” Jay Torrence said. “We would do shows pretty frequently. We want to go back into some of our older work that hasn’t been performed in 15 years. They are old audience favorites.”

“Our older fans will get a kick out of it,” he said, “and anyone that hasn’t seen it will get an introduction of some of our strongest material.”

Corn, Beef and Cabbage was originally formed out of the Berlin Christian Fellowship youth group in the summer of 1996. Members included Jay Torrence, Nate Torrence and Josh Ruth, with Ryan Torrence (then BCF’s youth pastor) as the manager. Josh moved out of state to attend Bible school in 1998, while Jay and Nate continued performing in local coffee houses, youth groups and high schools. In 1999, BCF sent the comedy duo to the Christian Artists Competition in Estes Park, Colo. Corn, Beef and Cabbage won first place in Best Drama Team and second place in Best Dramatic Writing. This earned them the privilege to open for Stephen Curtis Chapman in a live concert event also in Estes Park, Colo. In 2000, the group performed their last show at Hiland High School. Since then, both Jay and Nate have pursued careers in theater as well as television and film.

Today, performer/writer Jay Torrence is resident playwright at Chicago Dramatists, a founding member of The Ruffians (a chicago artistic collective based in physical theater and storytelling). The former Neo-Futurist Artistic Director, Jay was an ensemble member writing and performing over 12 years for the company. Jay’s full-length playwriting credits include BURNING BLUEBEARD, IVYWILD and ROUSTABOUT: THE GREAT CIRCUS TRAIN WRECK. BURNING BLUEBEARD received critical acclaim and was listed best fringe, best ensemble and best of theater of 2011 and Highly Recommended by The Chicago Tribune critic Chris Jones, The Chicago Sun Times, WBEZ Chicago Public Radio and Time Out Chicago. ROUSTABOUT: THE GREAT CIRCUS TRAIN WRECK was awarded the John W. Schmid Award for Outstanding New Work and The After Dark Award for Outstanding Production. Roustabout received a second production as part of Chicago’s Theatre on the Lake season.

Jay has also had the privilege of performing with Akvavit Theatre, Redmoon Theater, 500 Clown, The Hypocrites, Actor's Gymnasium, Theatre Oobleck and has toured nationally to The New Victory Theater (New York), The Shakespeare Theater (Washington, D.C.), and Woolly Mammoth Theatre (Washington, D.C.).
