All The Little Animals I Have Eaten

Written by Karen Hines

 

All the Little Animals I Have Eaten is a dark comedy set in a city like your own.
 
Recently, a film industry professional told his UCLA screenwriting students that they could only succeed in this world by writing scripts that featured male protagonists. As he reluctantly explained, “The audience doesn’t want to listen to a bunch of women talking about whatever it is women talk about.” Now, inspired by the “Bechdel-Wallace Test,” One Yellow Rabbit Performance Theatre (along with a bunch of women) endeavours to embrace that notion, and to shake it down.

All the Little Animals I Have Eaten tracks a thesis- addled, sleep-deprived film student as she serves local charcuterie to a well-heeled crowd at an unusually modern bistro. Over the course of a harrowing shift, she finds herself parsing some very female conversations about everything from plagiarism and polity to narcissism and killer-trolls, to spiritual transcendence and the Golden Retriever Convention in Scotland. The conversation does turn to shoes ... but it’s only when the food starts to speak that our hero really starts to listen.
