The Play

A suspense-filled, expletive-laced comedy sizzling with sparkling banter and second chances

 

In the cultural collision of a restaurant kitchen, Chef George, trying to stay sober, spends his shifts yelling at trash-talking Guatemalan line cooks, a wet-behind-the-ears American busboy, and a quiet East African dishwasher. But the heat turns up when an immigration agent arrives. How to Use a Knife bursts with hilarity, suspense, machismo, and surprises, as secrets from the past come to a boil.

 

Roles:

 

Miguel – Spanish-speaking Guatemalan restaurant cook

                Fast-talking, clever, sarcastic, sense of humor.

                30ish in age

 

Jack -        white busboy who just graduated from a good college

                 Intelligent, opinionated, wants to be cool and accepted

                 Early 20’s

 

Michael – white restaurant owner

                  Blunt, fast talking, rude, pompous, foul-mouthed, mover and shaker

                  40ish in age

 

Please prepare one comic contemporary monologue and sides will be provided.
