Let Me Cook For You is an epic journey through food, fashion and fable. It is an invitation to a meal that is life itself, an offering of personal history as its main ingredient, a meditation on a life in service of others and on the kindness of strangers. It is a ritual of repetition and renewal and a multi-sensory show that asks audiences to examine the stories and objects that make up a life. It focuses on the stories we repeat, the clothes we take from one place to another (in Orietta’s case, from Milan to New York) and the foods that remind us of our childhoods. By sharing a meal, touching fabrics rich with history and listening closely together, audiences engage with and re-enact the moments of resiliency that define our sense of self.

Let Me Cook For You is a collage of inherited myths and apocryphal histories, melding the intoxicating act of storytelling with the ritual of preparing food. The 150-minute show, designed for an intimate audience of up to 15 people, features a home-cooked meal, an installation of unique garments from Orietta’s designer collection and a closing ceremony, in which strangers share more than just the space. Co-presented by Theatrelab and Cherry Lane Alternative.
