I Love to Eat invites you to meet “the face and belly of American gastronomy” in this solo play that imagines a late night in Beard’s home. Learn More

She and her fellow activists went to trial to sound the alarm, and the world was pulled back from the brink of nuclear annihilation for the time being. Told with humor and love, Molly’s Hammer shines a light on how the choice of ordinary people to take action is what is needed to save our world.
