PART OF THE MANCHESTER SCIENCE FESTIVAL:
Food and the way we produce food are at the heart of the social, environmental issues and health challenges we face today. There is a global nutrition crisis with a dual problem of hunger and obesity. There is an increasing recognition that what and how people eat is intrinsically linked to factors such as poverty and wellbeing.
Hungry by Sarah Daniels is a filmed performance of Y Touring Theatre Company’s most recent play. It is a contemporary drama with humour, which tells the story of two very different UK families whose lives are interlinked, exploring the themes of under nutrition, diabetes, obesity and the recent debate around sugary drinks. Susanna is a lawyer in the process of making a fortune representing a global fizzy drinks company, whilst Ruby is her cleaner whose family depends on food banks.
Sarah Daniels is a popular and critically acclaimed writer and has had two collections of her plays published by Methuen.
There will be a Q & A session with the play’s director Nigel Townsend and others after the performance to discuss the issues raised.
The film is suitable for audiences aged 14+
This event is part of the MANCHESTER SCIENCE FESTIVAL and is free but booking is advised.
