Sebastian (Harry Lister Smith) is travelling half way around the world to find his steak-loving friend who’s missing in Nigeria, while Rashida (Alisha Bailey) just wants to eat her bar of chocolate in peace. GoGo (Robert Hands) is sacrificing everything for a glass of water and Erica (Donna Croll) is trying to win round her daughter’s affections with a rare delicacy – the last potato. But whatever you do don’t try one of Ruth’s carrots…


MOUTHFUL is a darkly comic and at times heartbreaking response to the global food crisis from six of the world’s leading dramatists in partnership with six world-renowned scientists.
