What does your food get up to when you're not looking? Find out in the New Zealand premiere of The Pantry Shelf. The satirical comedy is, yup, you guessed it, set on a pantry shelf and all the characters are food products. It explores branding, genetic engineering and consumerism, but mostly it's a love triangle between a rebellious muesli bar, a shy bag of porridge and a sexy block of dark chocolate.
The Pantry Shelf premiered at Edinburgh Fringe in 2010, receiving rave reviews and taking out the CSPA Fringe Award for Sustainable Production for Team M&M duo Mark Prebble (writer/director) and Marion Shortt (writer/actress).
