Guerrilla Girls On Tour presents If You Can Stand the Heat: A History of Women and Food

This new comedy is an energetic romp through humorous historical moments in the lives and works of world renowned master chef Julia Child, acclaimed food writer M.F.K. Fisher, and the grand dame of southern cooking Edna Lewis, with a focus on issues surrounding women and food such as body image, eating disorders, and global hunger. The result is a hilarious, flour-dusted, stage conversation meant to dissolve fears of food and encourage freedom of the fork.
