A funny, painful and deeply moving play about loss – and cooking.

Lucy has lost something very important. One minute Jo’s there, the next he isn’t, leaving Lucy with a pile of half-cooked food and a collection of invited (and uninvited) guests. As Lucy acclimatises to her new situation, she is absorbed, along with her visitors, into an intimate and sensory experience.

Pamela Carter’s play What We Know was first performed at the Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh, in 2010.

This edition includes recipes by Rosie Sykes that can be used in a production of the play.

‘Painful, tantalising and deeply moving’

‘A perfect metaphor for loss and for the disbelief and grief that ensues… innovative, sensitive, entertaining theatre’
