The Strayer-Wood Theatre presents The American Way of Eating

The American Way of Eating, based on the book of the same title by Tracie McMillan, is an original adaptation by Matthew Weedman.  McMillan went undercover in three jobs that feed America, living and eating off her wages in each.  Reporting from California fields, a Walmart produce aisle outside of Detroit, and the kitchen of a New York City Applebee’s, McMillan examines the reality of our country’s food industry.  This world-premiere performance guarantees that talking about dinner will never be the same again.  Directed by Matthew Weedman.

Merchant of Venice

In this comedy, Shakespeare weaves together two ancient folk myths, one involving a vengeful, greedy Jewish creditor trying to exact a pound of flesh from a Christian over an unpaid debt, the other involving a marriage suitor’s choice among three chests to win the hand of his beloved. How does one harmonize the Elizabethan anti-Semitic portrayal of Shylock with the fairy-tale romance of Portia and Bassanio? And then make this experience relevant and comedic to a contemporary audience? Join us as we celebrate the final production in our exploration of politically-themed work.
