Food for Thought

Four monologues from four fresh voices

Friday 25 May


Food for thought! New female voices, creating new work.

4 female actor/writers were given a brief – to create a solo piece on the theme of ‘Food and Empowerment'.

They could interpret how they wish; their stories, their voice, on their terms.

Following a week-long development programme at Tara with Anjali Mya Chadha, the ideas will be turned into new solo performances and premiered as works-in-progress.

The actor/writers include Bushra Laskar, Medhavi Patel, Gita Gupta and Rema Chandran.

Feed me your love by Gita Gupta is a story about the bond between a mother and daughter and how a daughter's life changes when the tables are turned unexpectedly.

Based on the true story of Indian activist Irom Sharmila, Bushra Laskar's Rice from My Mother's Hand asks the question 'What compels an ordinary woman from a small town to take on the might of the Indian army?'

Medhavi Patel's Life's Flavour is about the journey of a girl whose love for life and food changes as she becomes a woman, wife, mother and more.

In Where Lovers Meat, Rema Chandran gives voice to Shree, a self-confessed dating disaster who can't live without meat, and what happens when she meets strict vegetarian Jai.


This event is part of 'I'll Say It Again! A season of work by women artists'. This is a month-long festival of events including theatre, music, poetry and dance, celebrating the centenary of women's suffrage in the UK.
