WESTPORT, Conn. – Season tickets are now on sale for the 2015 season of Play With Your Food, Fairfield County’s innovative midday theater series combining a buffet lunch with short play readings and discussions with actors in Westport, Fairfield and Greenwich venues.
“Comedy rules this season,” said Artistic Director Carole Schweid. Play readings will include, among others, a selection from “Small World,” the new Fred Stroppel play en route to Broadway, starring Scott Bryce as Walt Disney; Paul Rudnick’s “My Husband” and Rosemary Foley’s hilarious domestic comedy, “Leaving Her.”
“There will be some steamier selections as well,” Schweid added, including “Mexico City,” by Hannah Moscovitch, which Schweid describes as “a tale about the trials and unexpected revelations of traveling with your spouse – hidden in the back streets of exotic places.” Kitt Lavoie’s “Bank & Trust” will bring the financial crisis all too close to home.
Westport productions will be held at Toquet Hall, 58 Post Road E. on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, Jan. 13–15, Feb. 3–5, March 3–5 and March 31, April 1 and 2.
In Fairfield, productions will take place at Fairfield Theater Company, 70 Sanford St., on Tuesdays, Jan. 20, Feb. 10, March 10 and April 7.

Programs run from noon to 1:30 p.m., beginning with a buffet lunch and conversation followed by play readings and discussion with the artists.
“Neighborhood favorites DaPietro’s, The Granola Bar and Blue Lemon will provide lunch at the Westport productions,” said Managing Director Inge Maki. To date, The Pantry and Spic & Span will provide catering in Fairfield and Garelick & Herbs will provide catering in Greenwich.
