A woman sits behind a large, chocolate cake. The chocolate cake takes up almost the whole image; only her eyes and hands are visible and she grips it.

Hungry is a new play from Chris Bush about food, love, class and grief in a world where there's little left to savour.

'I’d watch you eat. I’d eat you up. You’re not like them, are you? You’re real.'

Lori is a professional chef. Bex waits tables to make ends meet. One night together in a walk-in fridge and the rest is history. 

Lori has big plans, but Bex is struggling. If we are what we eat, then Bex is in real trouble. It's not her fault though - thesystem is rigged.No-one on minimum wage and zero hours has the headspace to make their own yoghurt.
