Y’all Come Eat: Stories of Supper and Salvation

Barter Theatre's Smith Stage, 8:00 PM

Food is the great unifier of humans. It is the great equalizer. If you are from the south, you know that no gathering can happen without eating.

From weddings to wakes, cakewalks to casseroles, farming to foraging, Sunday supper to Saturday’s big game, church potlucks to backyard keggers, birthdays to baby showers, Thanksgiving feasts to TV dinners, Granny’s garden to Paw Paw’s 8-point buck, the fabric of our lives is often woven around these visceral memories of food.

Tonight’s stories will honor and celebrate our connectedness with food and how some of our greatest stories can happen around the kitchen table.

A little Vaudeville, a smidge of irreverent rock and roll, a dash of freak show, a heap of hilarity, and a massive infusion of soul, Hoot and Holler will restore faith in the way we, as humans, share and listen to stories.
