Guillermo Verdecchia’s new play Feast follows a comfortable North American family as they contend with breakfast, family life, and the end of things as we know them. The family deals with the coming troubles in their own ways. Twenty-something daughter Isabel is increasingly convinced that something drastic must be done. Her mother, Julia, fortifies their home in preparation. And her father, Mark, lets his foodie cravings precipitate the family’s unraveling as he brings Chukwuemeka Okonkwe – super-competent, under-employed fixer and logistical genius looking for the business opportunity he deserves – into their lives. Moving from North America to Beirut to Mombasa, with stops along the way at Starbucks, The Centre for Avant-Garde Geography, and a cave on the island of Lampedusa, Feast spans the globalized world and beyond, offering a wild, magical-realist take on the uncertainties and anxieties of the early twenty-first century.
