Meat Cute

Directed by Jessica Mitolo

@ 8:00 | Small Theatre


About the Show

Spunky college kid Alice cares so much about vegetarianism! Maybe too much? She’s started to daydream about doing the unthinkable! OH GOD DEFINITELY TOO MUCH. Meat Cute is a true story about grappling with the ethics of surviving trashpile American capitalism, battling existential crisis, and idolizing Alicia Silverstone. Vegan cake is included at every performance of this darkly comic musical romp that swings from bloody to saccharine faster than a captive bolt pistol can murder a piglet.
