FEATURES / CONTAINS

Unit Set/Multiple Settings

A play about people and their relationship to work. It is early morning in the empty kitchen of a large restaurant. A night porter wakes and lights the ovens. One by one the chefs enter and slowly they work to prepare lunch. The waitresses drift through, lay-up, prepare to serve. Cameo stories emerge. Personalities clash. Momentum mounts. Service begins. Cresendo of movement. Interlude: in which some of the chefs talk about their dreams, merging into the evening preparations less hectic, but leading to the violent denouement as one of the chefs goes beserk.
