THE WAITRESS

BY GEORGIA BANKS

Welcome to The Waitress, my name is Georgia Banks and I will be serving you. I will serve you. You will be served by me. What would happen if we started to talk about sex and money and food and feminism? Is that self-serving?

I’m serving you. I’m here to serve you something saucy, something sweet. What if we tried to understand the power relations between the one who serves and the one who is served? That’s a piece of meat you can really sink your teeth into.

Your waitress wants you to see this show.
