What’s Eating Gilbert Grape
A theatrical adaptation of Peter Hedges’s cult classic novel is a story about residents of a small, provincial American town interlaced with new arrangements of well-known hits performed live. It is a tale about coming of age and longing, about what is eating us and how not to let it eat us from within. The performance emphasises normality standards characterizing each society. Those who do not adhere to the assimilable scheme may be hard to accept.
