Listen to the third of three excerpts developed by the Food for Thought Project, a year-long writing lab for aspiring audio dramatists.

And Eat It, Too was written by Ashley-Ruth Bernier.

SUMMARY:

Jolie, an optimistic and talented baker in an impoverished island community, finds herself at a crossroads when a high-stakes, hugely popular cake decorating show (think “Cake Wars”, etc.) decides to film its next season on island. As an intern on the show, Jolie inadvertently publicizes the question of what happens to the cakes once the filming is finished--and finds herself in the middle of the show’s mission to showcase the fine art of outlandish cake decoration, and her community’s real problem with food insecurity.
