All the Little Animals I Have Eaten by Karen Hines
April 3 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm EDTFree
Nightwood Theatre is pleased to announce that we’ll be presenting an online staged reading of Karen Hines’ All the Little Animals I Have Eaten, in lieu of the live performance that was slated to open last week on March 26, but was cancelled due to COVID-19. For one night only on Friday, April 3rd, the cast will perform their roles from their individual homes over Zoom, and we will be sharing the stream live on our YouTube page. Though this will undoubtedly be different and more DIY than what the full production would have delivered, we are excited to share a reading of this timely script.
Governor General Award-nominated, powerhouse playwright Karen Hines (The Pochsy Plays; Crawlspace) serves up a biting meditation on capitalism, consumption, precarity and hope in her latest dark comedy. Set in the extraordinarily modern bistro of an all-women’s condominium, All the Little Animals I Have Eaten follows a tender-hearted young server on the most harrowing shift of her life. With a stellar cast of comedic performers, this piece examines hyper-capitalism, the commodification of feminism, neoliberalism, and the increasingly unattainable dream of snatching a piece of the real-estate pie.
Friday, April 3 at 7:30 pm. To join the livestream, visit Nightwood Theatre’s YouTube page at:
