WORLD PREMIERE! Ripped from the headlines and based on a real event, Taste tells the story of two men who meet online and make a unique arrangement: One man will kill, cook, and eat the other. Over the course of the evening, secrets are revealed, boundaries are tested, and a strange but beautiful relationship unfolds. Deliciously voyeuristic, sinfully elegant, and surprisingly touching, this is Taste.

Warning: Due to strong sexual content and imagery, no one under the age of 18 will be admitted.

"With 'Taste,' [Stuart Gordon] once again enters the horror genre and stretches the definition." -KPBS

"This remarkable provocation pulls off the tricky balance of trafficking in excess without becoming indulgently complicit in it." -The Hollywood Reporter

"RECOMMENDED.  Itís chilling stuff, yet itís also inexplicably hilarious... together the performances intersect and ebb and flow like a beautifully orchestrated duet. Itís masterful writing... searingly visceral..." -Stage Raw

"...an essentially serious and weirdly touching character study... brilliant performances... something about this tragic relationship pierces the heart." -Talkin' Broadway

"...remarkably nuanced... sends a continuous series of chills up the spine... a maturely observed meditation on contemporary urban life... thereís food for thought here. Yeah, thatís it. From soup to nuts. Literally." -Arts In L.A.

"...Stomach Churning and Touching... remarkably polished... remarkably poignant." -Bloody Disgusting

"...a confident, strong character piece that rippled with nervous, awkward energy... a unique and cool alternative to anything else you might have planned... Definitely recommended!" -Shock Till You Drop

"...not to be missed. A thoughtful and stunning character piece on loneliness and the cannibalization of the human condition, Gordon is in top-form here with an experience thatís as horrific and disturbing as it is tragic and poignant." -Daily Dead

"...you are in for a err... delicious treat! ...Itís as intimate as you can get with these two people and itís electrifying watching it all unfold." -Icons of Fright
