Lori is a professional chef. Bex waits on tables to make ends meet. One night together in a walk-in fridge and it's the beginning of something beautiful.

Lori has big plans, while Bex is struggling. If we are what we eat, then Bex is in real trouble. It's not her fault – the system is rigged. No one on minimum wage and zero hours has the headspace to make their own yoghurt.

Chris Bush's Hungry is a play about food, love, class and grief in a world where there's little left to savour. 


"Sensitive, confronting and seriously funny... smart writing... Like the best theatre, Hungry is reflective and thought-provoking – and a call for change."

- The Stage

"Thought-provoking and highly entertaining."

- British Theatre Guide

"Chris Bush's clever two-hander is a thoughtful exploration of attitudes to what we eat."

- Guardian
