Eat like a dictator. Our story, based on real events, takes a young chef from running top after-hours nightspots to running for his life from one of the bloodiest men in the world, Libyan Dictator Muammar Qaddafi.
Food metaphorically describes the methods and madness of the dictator. Audience members savor tastes of the dishes Muammar Qaddafi loved. The audience is not simply sampling Qaddafi’s favorites, it is having a sensory experience, literally tasting ideas.
