ROUNDABOUT 2020 Season

HUNGRY by Chris Bush


“Show me your fridge and I’ll show you what you’re worth.”


We are what we eat, and Bex eats shit. It's not like she has any choice though - when times are tough the last thing you think about is your five-a-day. Today is different though. Today the table groans, and the best china is out. Today things will change.


HUNGRY is a new play about food, class and grief in a world where there's little left to savour.
