You Are What You - A New Play by Mora V. Harris

  • Directed by Jillian Frame

Content Warning: Eating Disorders, Death

ABOUT THE PLAY - Competitive eater Francie is desperate to find a way to help her younger sister Trisha eat. When celebrity chef, Electra Sinclair, arrives on their doorstep, she thinks she may have found just the thing to set Trisha on the road to recovery. Yet Trisha's illness worsens as she begins seeing visions of a talking Pot Roast, and Francie becomes distracted by an ex hell-bent on exploiting her in a cogent work of non-fiction. The sisters struggle to take care of each other and nourish themselves in this comedy about learning from the things we crave.
