CONNIE AND KEVIN AND THE SECRET LIFE OF GROCERIES

by Noëlle Janaczewska

In the busy international food court of a city mall, Connie, a young sandwich stall worker, sings along to schmaltzy tunes and fantasises a romance with the young man who works at the Korean food counter. Knowing nothing about him, not even his name, she calls him Ki-sung.

In between comments on Internet spam and racism in Australia, Kevin, the object of Connie's dreaming, imagines an encounter with the sandwich stall girl. Not knowing her name, he calls her Coralie.

Fantasy meets reality when Connie and Kevin finally connect. A topical and comic romance with a fantastical twist.

"The script is superb: fast-paced, witty and brilliantly tongue-in-cheek. We cringe, we howl and basically enjoy ourselves immensely." - Clara Iaccarino, Revolver, 17 September 2001

"The text is full of the erotics of food and there's some dazzling wordplay with all manner of edible substances. The text... is a crowd-pleasing confection with some deeper ideas occasionally bubbling to the surface of the broth." - Stephen Dunne, Sydney Morning Herald, 17 September 2001
