The Food Chain

February 20 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

| $10


Spoon Productions is a new collaborative group of artists from varying backgrounds and talents with a common interest/concentration in writing, improvisation, film, and live theatre. Current members consist of Jordan Stovall, Kyra Bromberg, Britta Whittenberg, Shane O’Neill, Joey Pelletier, and Dan Poppy. We met during the completion of the sketch curriculum at the Upright Citizens Brigade Training Center, and continued to meet independently to create and workshop new sketch comedy as the team We Spoon.

The Food Chain will be our second production after our successful debut of AfterSpoon Delight, a sketch comedy show written, produced, directed, publicized, and acted by the members of Spoon in December 2014 at The Treehouse Theater.


Even almost 20 years after its acclaimed first Off-Broadway run in 1995 at the Wooly Mammoth Theater, The Food Chain‘s sharp commentary on self-image, acceptance, and the desperation that follows from a lack of both rings true with present-day audiences. Silver’s philosophy of mixing his message with a heavy dose of absurd character-based humor makes for a heavy-hitting comedy that sheds light on the darker side of our insecurities and coping mechanisms.

But don’t take our word for it!
“In The Food Chain, Nicky Silver’s toxic, fractured tale of sex, loneliness and the importance of being thin, the pursuit of love is an even more convoluted process than usual. It’s hard, after all, to forge a relationship when all you can really hear is the sound of your own voice. For the poisonously funny, image-obsessed Manhattanites in the play, all the world’s a mirror. It’s no accident that much of this breathless comedy of neuroses […] is made up of monologues, even though there are nearly always at least two people onstage.” – New York Times
