Play With Your Food Lunchtime Theatre Series to Feature MOLLY AND JAMES, THE INTERVIEW and BABY FOOD, 3/4-11

Play With Your Food (PWFY) - Fairfield County's innovative lunchtime theater series -- has announced the selections for its upcoming productions in Westport (March. 4-6) and Fairfield (March 11).

Shows are presented at Toquet Hall in Westport and at Fairfield Theatre Company. In March, lunch will be provided by Nicholas Roberts in Westport and Safita in Fairfield.

Now in its 12th year, PWYF provides patrons with a theater experience that includes a gourmet buffet lunch, a selection of one-act play readings and post-event discussions with professional actors and playwrights - all packed into a 90-minute program.

The selections for March will be filled with excitement and humor, promises Artistic Director Carole Schweid. Productions will include Molly and James by Sheila Walsh, The Interview by A.R. Gurney and Baby Food by Pulitzer Prize-winner David Lindsay-Abaire.

"We get so excited when we find these short gems by such accomplished authors," says Schweid. "Molly and James is about an imaginary meeting between the great Irish novelist James Joyce, and one of his most beloved characters, Molly Bloom. The Interview, about a father and son on their way home from a college interview, is written with heart and humor, and Baby Food will entertain the audience as an off-kilter couple searches for the perfect godparents."

Cast members in March will include Katie Sparer (Stratford), Brian Carter (Westport), Marty Bongfeldt, (Danbury), Eileen Lawless (Norwalk), Donald Warfield (Fairfield) and Alan Zeller (Milford).

The PWYF season concludes next month with performances at Toquet Hall taking place April 1-3 and Fairfield Theatre Company productions occurring on April 8. In addition, Play With Your Food at the Greenwich Arts Council is offered March 26-27 and April 16-17.

The remainder of the 2014 Play With Your Food season include excerpts from Noel Coward's Private Lives, featuring TV and film personalities Daniel Gerroll and Patricia Kalember, who recently performed the work together at the Guthrie Theater in Minneapolis. Also on the roster is Arthur Miller's glimpse at immigration in Grandpa and the Statue.

Refinements at FTC have enhanced the Fairfield offerings, notes PWYF Managing Director Inge Maki. "Enhancements at FTC now include enjoying lunch either in the newly renovated art gallery or on the stage of the theater," said Maki."Eating lunch in these warm, cozy spaces has heightened the overall PWYF experience for our audiences."

Tickets for all Play With Your Food shows, including lunch, are $43. To purchase tickets, and see a complete schedule and locations, visit www.jibproductions.org or call the box office at (203) 293-8831 Monday-Friday between 10 a.m and 4 p.m.
