CHEF by Sabrina Mahfouz

Upstream Theater is excited to present the US premiere of the award-winning CHEF by UK/Egyptian playwright and poet Sabrina Mahfouz—the gripping story of how one woman went from being a haute-cuisine head chef to a convicted inmate running a prison kitchen. Leading us through her world of mouth-watering dishes and heart-breaking memories, Chef questions our attitudes to food, prisoners, violence, love and hope.

The one woman show will be played by St. Louis’ own Linda Kennedy and directed by the internationally acclaimed director and composer Marianne de Pury. Originally from the French part of Switzerland, in the 1960s Ms. de Pury moved to New York where she worked with Joe Chaikin’s Open Theatre, and composed music for the iconic America Hurrah and Viet Rock. Since then she has directed all over the world, mostly in Germany–where her latest show was nominated as one of the best performances of the year.
