On today’s podcast, we take a trip back to November 2016 and chat with Playwright, Greg Nanni. When the idea for “Commuter” came about, I wanted to bank a few episodes before releasing. Following the Septa model, we are running behind schedule. So, here’s the interview with Greg that took place after the reading. We will release the reading as soon as the trains start running again. Stay Tuned!

ABOUT ANIMAL FARM TO TABLE

Can we achieve a food utopia? Conceived and directed by Mike Durkin, this new take on dinner theatre uses subject matter, philosophy, and themes from George Orwell’s Animal Farm to explore ideas of food hierarchy, ethical food consumption, and where Philadelphia’s food comes from. One part performance, one part town hall discussion, this event culminates in a community-created meal made of ingredients the audience picks with their own hands.
