Food Court tells the story of a near death experience in a suburban wonderland. Read More >

Luminously fragile, Food Court tells the story of a near death experience in a suburban wonderland. Witness the story of one woman’s humiliation as it is played out in a psychological space constructed from light and sound.

Part concert, part theatre show, Food Court is an unpredictable roller coaster of images, sound and emotion featuring live music by Sydney cult jazz trio, The Necks.

Driven by an ensemble of artists with intellectual disabilities, Food Court creator Back to Back Theatre is uniquely placed to comment on society.

Food Court contains strong language, sexual references and partial nudity, and is suitable for theatregoers aged 16 and older.
