Who's Hungry?/West Hollywood
(2010)

Who's Hungry?/West Hollywood uses as it source, the oral histories of three people living with hunger and/or homelessness in West Hollywood. Collected by performance artist Dan Froot, and adapted by Froot and Hurlin, the ten hour-long interviews form the basis for three, short, toy theater plays. What the Fireman Said follows Robert from the highs of living the good life in Europe, to the lows of sleeping under a freeway exit ramp. Eight Days Without a Dog follows Sandy tearing through the streets of LA, looking for her beloved Sharyl who has disappeared from the van they sleep in. We listen to the thoughts and questions of Leo in Dawn by Me, while he sits on a city bench, watching the world go by, and the sun setting over the Pacific.  A companion piece, Who’s Hungry?/Santa Monica will premiere at Highways in Santa Monica in January of 2012.”
