Award-winning Off-Broadway play
54 meals that take you on the multiple flavours of life

When a family sits together for a meal, food always takes a secondary role because the primary focus is the time spent with one’s kin. The Big Meal captures many meals of five generations of a family, as scenes follow each other in tight succession, chronicling the many flavors—from sweet to bitter, sour to spicy—of family relationships. Some far-reaching beliefs and values are passed on subconsciously from generation to generation through meals—son becoming father, father becoming grandfather—as years fall by quickly.

The Big Meal
, written by Dan LeFranc, formerly Visiting Lecturer running the MFA Playwriting Workshop at the Yale School of Drama, was lauded as Best Play of the Year by the Chicago Tribune before receiving its Off-Broadway premiere in 2012 and nominated as Outstanding Play at the Drama Desk Awards. A fast-paced comedy of life featuring eight actors playing 26 characters, The Big Meal takes the audience on an exhilarating journey of 54 meals portraying a moving feast of love and life within one family.
