This is the story of an unusual family. Though they are nothing like yours, you will recognize them. They are the last Cannibal-Americans.
And they have a problem. When their mother dies, twelve children gather to dispose of the body in the traditional manner … by eating it. But can they follow the ancient rituals of consumption? Is their unique cultural heritage worth preserving if it’s this gross? And what about dietary requirements – one of them is vegan.
Surely it can’t be this hard to do the right thing ?Mother for Dinner is a dark comedy about modern life and its many difficulties.
