Playwright Wendy MacLeod had this to say: “This is a play about the world’s worst waiter. And he’s probably been your waiter at some point.”

The service in this eatery is terrible and the food is scarce, which means the laughs come easily and often. “Slow Food” is a comedy through and through.   It is Sartre meeting Seinfeld in a Greek restaurant.

The premise is simple. Irene and Peter, two vacationing empty-nesters, arrive famished at a Palm Springs restaurant after traveling from the East Coast and enduring the typical travel frustrations. But things don’t improve when their well-meaning waiter wants so much to shepherd them through the perfect dining experience that nothing — not even a breadbasket — can reach the table.

How could anyone be expected to put up with this impossibly unbearable situation? And yet, for these two empty-nesters, perhaps the slow service is more of a gift than either of them realize… sometimes waiting can open a heart.

Starring Carole Florman, Tom Handel, and Gregory J. Hawks
