Headwaiter Claude, waiter-in-training Antoine, waitress Mimi and chef Gaston are shocked and dismayed when Victor, the Café’s owner and sole patron, returns from the bullfights in Madrid, longing for Mademoiselle, morose and planning to die of starvation. Their very livelihoods depend upon Victor’s appetite, so they beg him to let them “serve” one last meal. Leaving each course in the kitchen, they surround the table describing the aromas, flavors and tastes! Their goal? For Victor to capitulate and ask to eat the meal, of course!
A “comic tragedy in seven courses” celebrating the joys of cooking, sex, bullfighting and the collected works of Ernest Hemingway, An Empty Plate will be an evening you will savor!
