White Rooster Theatre’s Hunger
The Arts and Culture Centre is proud to present White Rooster Theatre’s Hunger , written by Meghan Greeley and directed by Michael Waller.
In Hunger , Greeley skillfully explores the tenuous relationship between selflessness and survival. Hunger establishes the familiar trope of the praiseworthy couple that risks life and limb to hide an oppressed group from the authorities. Then, brilliantly and disturbingly, it reveals these characters as self-serving and potentially monstrous. Beneath the facade of civilization and in extreme circumstances, anyone may be capable of horrific behavior. The play does judge the character’s hidden natures, only to reveal them.
Hunger explores that murky territory and goes even deeper into the very nature of supposedly benevolent acts and those who purport to undertake them. That Greeley does so with deft humor is truly astonishing.
