ABOUT THE SHOW

Empty-nesters Irene and Peter are struggling to salvage their anniversary dinner at the only open restaurant in town. 

However, when their maddening, meddling waiter inserts himself into their meal and their marriage, the evening really heats up! 

The hangry couple begin to question everything from their menu choices to their future together. 

Will their food ever come?

Will their waiter ever leave? 

Will they even make it to their next anniversary? 

Slow Food is a theatrical treat that explores what we truly hunger for and will please the palate of even the most discerning diners and viewers.

Local favorite Daniel Bourque directs three of Boston’s funniest actors: Steve Auger (Dorchester, Elliot Norton Award winner and IRNE Award Nominee), Jyoti Daniere (Cambridge), and Victor Shopov (Swampscott, Elliot Norton Award and IRNE Award winner) in this tender, uproarious comedy that delves into what really sustains us. 

Wendy MacLeod is the author of nearly three-dozen full-length, short, and one-act plays that have been produced in theaters throughout the United States and Europe. 

Her play The House of Yes was a Los Angeles Drama Critics Circle award nominee and became an award-winning Miramax film starring Parker Posey

Other plays include The Water Children (Special Jury Award, Sundance Film Festival, Playwrights Horizons), and Things Being What They Are (Seattle Repertory Theatre, Steppenwolf Theatre, The Road Theater LA). 

Her play This Flight Tonight was included in Standing on Ceremony: The Gay Marriage Plays

MacLeod was the first playwright chosen for The Writers’ Room residency at The Arden Theatre in Philadelphia, where she wrote Women in Jeopardy! 

A graduate of the Yale School of Drama, she is the James E. Michael Playwright-in-Residence at Kenyon College and winner of The New Yorker Caption Contest.
