A portrait of one of the greatest American food writers of the 20th century, Mary Frances Kennedy Fisher, whose writing transcended recipes and reviews to probe our deep-seated relationship to our appetites. Assembled from diaries, journalism, and short stories, Kelly Nespor's play creates a vivid tableau of the life of this preeminent and influential gourmet.
An L.A. Theatre Works full-cast production featuring Anne Archer, Kurt Ehrmann, Jennifer Friedmann, Lily Shaw, and David Tierney. Directed by Paul Frellick and recorded before a live audience.
"Anne Archer heads the cast of this recorded performance featuring excerpts from food writer M.F.K. Fisher's works. Archer illuminates both the sensuousness and the humor of Fisher's observations on food and people, while the supporting cast provides balance and contrast. Because this is a stage production, listeners can expect to hear sound effects and the audience's laughter, both of which add to the theater ambiance." (AudioFile)
