    By Vahé Katcha
    Translated from Julien Sibre's adaptation by Matthew Hurt and Sarah Vermande.

    1942, Occupied France. In a parisian suburb, seven friends gather to celebrate their hostess' birthday. Conversation is light and good humoured, the food exquisite, company excellent - until two german officers are shot dead in front of their apartment. A Gestapo officer, Kaubach walks in, asking for two hostages per apartment. Kaubach knows the hosts, and being told it's the hostess's birthday, gives them until the end of their dinner to choose who will be leaving with him. The friendly supper ends and the feeding time begins. Seven friends turn into seven enemies, with seven different alibis, reasons not to die - the war is now fought with words and glances, as opposed to guns and ships.

    Feeding Time (LE REPAS DES FAUVES) is a French period-specific play that examines timeless themes - the way war destroys life and love on the home front as well as on the battlefield, and how quickly pleasantries can be cast aside in traumatic events. It does this through a mix of tension and dark humour, exploring the darkest aspects of human nature. This play was first put on in Paris in 2010, where it was a huge success and received numerous awards. We are the first company to have put on this play in the UK and in English.
