Food is a gift. Something you give to others. A privilege. An excuse to be with the ones you love.

Back home, the mouth-watering flavours and aromas of traditional Peruvian cooking was forbidden in Pepa’s home. Except when Grandma would sneak in a steak and some spices. In England, Pepa found herself on a journey, a journey inside herself, to discover that food could be shared with a new family around a new table. And you are invited to taste it. Through Duarte’s own experiences, Eating Myself takes us on an exciting journey that will make us reflect on our own relationship with food.

Join Pepa Duarte (A Fight Against, Royal Court) for a full sensory experience at Theatre Royal Wakefield exploring womanhood, body image and tradition in her debut play directed by Sergio Maggolio (The Dark Stone, Cervantes Theatre, Ovalhouse and Arcola).

“A well-crafted piece of theatrical storytelling. Nourishing, and created with a great deal of heart and soul.” – ⭐⭐⭐⭐ The Spy in the Stalls

Warning: This performance contains talks of body image and appearance.
