How to Use a Knife

HOW TO USE A KNIFE by Will Snider 

August 31 – October 2, 2016NNPN logo
National New Play Network Rolling World Premiere

Directed by Michael Stevenson

In the chaotic hustle and bustle of a Wall Street restaurant kitchen, Chef George is trying to stay sober. In between yelling at a pair of trash-talking line cooks and a pot-smoking busboy, he befriends Steve, an East African immigrant who seems to be a humble yet dignified dishwasher. Set during busy dinner shifts and filled with a cast of unforgettable New York characters, How To Use A Knife bursts with grinding suspense, energy, and surprise.
