There’s something strange about the trendy new restaurant in town. When Ann and Rachelle meet there for dinner, there’s already tension in the friendship they’ve built on their common experience navigating academia as black women: While Ann just got tenure at her tiny liberal arts college, Rachelle’s struggling to find her place at the less prestigious State University.
So at first, it’s easy to overlook odd things like the single water glass they are offered, or the mysterious server who keeps assigning points to their conversational gambits. But as the hunger sets in, the two professors find themselves the unknowing stars of an absurdist dinner theater performance of black plight. Somebody’s got to take the first bite, after all. A sharp, surreal satire about who gets a place at the table.
