Prairie Theatre Exchange’s forthcoming play, FEAST, is a dark comedy-drama about M, a jet-setting consultant who feels he’s going to slide off the face of the earth. Running from Oct. 10 to 22, the play, written by Guillermo Verdecchia and directed by Thomas Morgan Jones, asks all the important questions, like whether a character is having a hot flash – or if it’s just global warming.
