The Midnight Soup
Summerhall Festival - Lower Cafe Gallery
The Midnight Soup is a piece of theatre during which the audience prepare a meal that they share at the end. The Midnight Soup starts as a monologue, and gently opens out to become a conversation. It tells the story, of an unremarkable woman, who every day, sat down to meticulously record the facts of her life in a diary, until one day, she chose her own death. The Midnight Soup is the love letter of a grandson to his grandmother. It is also an edible memorial, celebrating a life lived to the rhythm of the seasons.
