SATURN (a play about food)
SATURN (a play about food) is the fifth in Superhero Clubhouse's Planet Play series. Jack and Rhea have inherited a farm. 30 years old and recently married, they move from the city to start anew. All is harmonious at first, until a mountain of books and a handful of magic seeds shake the stability of their natural kingdom, and what was once so simple suddenly turns wild and unpredictable.
What should we eat? Where should it come from? What is natural?
Such questions besiege many of us multiple times a day. Riffing on the myth of Kronos, the story of Jack and the Beanstalk, contemporary agricultural science and the alimentary experiences of couples around the age of 30, SATURN presents a unique theatrical take on these particular conundrums of food, and how they affect our relationships.
Superhero Clubhouse is a society of theater artists engaged in making original plays and events about the natural world via a green and collaborative process. Our experiments involve cultivating an intrinsic relationship between the ideals of ecology and the processes and content of theater. Through our work, we hope to form lasting collaborations with scientists, activists and artists from diverse mediums in order to further develop and define the future of a green and unique theatrical event.
