“I like you Dean, I really do but, what if we have kids? What if they turn out to be freakish slow eaters like you? Tiny chicken man-mouthed babies? …We all eat fast now. It’s bred into us like prized greyhounds.”
Ten delicious tales by some of the country’s best emerging playwrights.
Bite Me is the latest instalment of The Voices Project, the overwhelmingly successful annual program of monologues developed by ATYP, published by Currency Press, written by young people, performed by young actors around the country and seen by over ¾ of a million people globally online as we bring the monologues to life on film as well as on stage.
In 2014 the collection of seven-minute stories serves a banquet of monologues titled Bite Me where the starting point is food..We have assembled some of Sydney’s best, working under the guidance of award-winning director, Anthony Skuse. Funny, warm, irreverent and cheeky, this is a celebration of the complexity and contradictions of young lives. Bite Me is a feast for the senses.
