Join Theatre R.A.W. for a serio-comic myth-tery tour, as you are enfolded in a complex and engaging piece of theatre whose deceptively simply framework supports a scathing attack on excessive consumption and consumerism, self-gratification, addiction, corporate greed, global control, big pharma and the "fake" food industry. Join Mother, Jack, the Holy Cow, the Princess and heir to the Green Giant fortune, the Golden Goose, Mrs. Giant and the Giant himself as they roller coaster up and down the beanstalk of life. Sometimes, traversing the past leads you to transforming the present. The members of Theatre R.A.W. embrace the traditional forms of myth and parable in order to explore the contemporary world. Bean Stock is directed by Playhouse co-artistic director Chris DeCarlo, crafted and performed via the acclaimed ShortBurst® Theatre method by R.A.W. company members Esther Boateng, Patricia Burgos, Bob Hucul, Eleonore Nebot, Stephanie Slocum, and Berkeley Sanjay, who does double-duty as assistant director, and written by Playhouse Playwright-in-Residence Evelyn Rudie. One performance only!
