A uniquely immersive theater experience, this play — conceived by actress Meg Persichetti with Adrian native and film director Laura Gilkey — sets a story about love and family in that center of family life, the kitchen. The performance takes place amid the preparation of the meal, which the audience will then share together as a community. Space is very limited, so book early!
Aglio e Olio will take place in an area residence in Blissfield, Michigan. Upon arrival, guests will mingle in the living room. Wine, beer and soft drinks will be available for sale, and we hope everyone will take time to meet some of the other guests of the play. Following the socializing, and once everyone is comfortably seated, we’ll share in the performance of Aglio e Olio. The show is as much about life and death and family, as it is about pasta and olive oil, and it is indeed a multi-sensory experience. Following the performance all guests will have the opportunity to continue the evening with samples of Aglio e Olio and delicious Italian bread. (Gluten free option available upon request.)
Note: This play will take place in the Blissfield home of Brenda and Frank Baker.Order tickets
