Sebastian (Harry Lister-Smith) is travelling halfway around the world to find his steak-loving friend who’s missing in Nigeria, while Rashida (Alisha Bailey) just wants to eat her bar of chocolate in peace. GoGo is sacrificing everything for a glass of water and Erica’s trying to win round her daughter’s affections with a rare delicacy – the last potato. But whatever you do don’t try one of Ruth’s carrots…
Mouthful is a darkly comic and at times heartbreaking response to the global food crisis from six of the world’s leading dramatists in partnership with six world-renowned scientists.

We really enjoyed the production. There was some excellent acting from all the actors, particularly those taking bigger parts. The format was interesting with 6 different playlets some of which were very funny, some serious and more menacing. The song and dance routine was funny but didn't fit with the rest of it, but it didn't matter. We liked the small studio too so that everything was easy to see and hear and the proximity of the bar and toilets was a bonus. We were less keen on the dirt floor because a lot of dust was generated but could see that it was important for at least one of the pieces. Altogether an excellent evening.
