Eating Myself

Join Pepa Duarte for a full sensory experience exploring womanhood, body image and tradition in her debut play directed by Sergio Maggiolo.

“Food is a gift. Something you give to others. A privilege. An excuse to be with the ones you love.”

Back home, the mouth-watering flavours and aromas of traditional Peruvian cooking was forbidden in Pepa’s home. Except when Grandma would sneak in a steak and some spices. In England, Pepa found herself on a journey, a journey inside herself, to discover that food could be shared with a new family around a new table. And you are invited to taste it. Through her own experiences, Duarte takes us on an exciting journey that will make us reflect on our own relationship with food.

Bienvenidxs to Pepa’s table (A Fight Against, Royal Court), as she prepares you a traditional Peruvian soup whilst leading you through a powerful story of food, family and traditions.
