Editors' note: The Pantry Shelf received the first Fringe Award for Sustainable Production at the Edinburgh Fringe, presented by the Center for Sustainable Practice in the Arts (CSPA).
The Pantry Shelf is a satirical comedy that takes place in any ordinary pantry shelf. Characters are food items most of us have readily available. The story follows the addition of a revolutionary new snack to the shelf: Queenie, a quinoa, date and bark bar.
Queenie discovers that her healthy branding doesn’t accurately represent what’s actually inside. The comedy explores branding, consumerism and the corporate control of our diets. It’s also a 'love story between a quinoa bar, a bag of Scottish porridge and a sexy block of dark chocolate,' and about staying true to yourself.
