The Midnight Soup is a piece of theatre during which the audience prepare a meal that they share at the end. Starting as a monologue it gently opens out to become a conversation. It tells the story of an unremarkable woman, who sat down every day to meticulously record her life in a diary, until one day she chose her own death. The Midnight Soup is the love letter of a grandson to his grandmother. It is also an edible memorial, celebrating a life lived to the rhythm of the seasons.
