At the heart of the Food Theater Project is Milk-n-Honey, a multimedia theatrical performance about Americans, food, appetite, and happiness. Part documentary, part fiction, Milk-n-Honey examines how a diverse array of Americans make choices about the food they eat, and how those choices affect their lives and the world around them. The Food Theater Project performance celebrates the beauty and sensuality of food, and at the same time questions our ability, as Americans, to really savor it.
LightBox has developed the play by interviewing people from all over the country who have interesting and intense relationships with food. Working with Princess Grace Award–winning playwright Madeleine George, the company has turned these interviews into characters and storylines that chronicle the diversity of the American experience with food.

LightBox most recently presented Milk-N-Honey in Amherst, Mass in July 2008 at the Ko Festival of Performance, as the first stop on our upcoming national tour. Stay tuned for more tour locations and dates.
