LECTURE: Amy Freed on her new play, Hell to Pay

Join us for an evening of discussion with Amy Freed on her new play Hell to Pay, a part of the Stanford Humanities Center workshop on Sustenance: Food, Sustainability, and the Humanities.

Hell to Pay is one of twenty pieces commissioned by the Berkeley Rep as part of The Food Project. Freed’s play takes on the topic of factory farming and is inspired by the stories she heard from two women, Helen Reddout and Karen Hudson, who have direct experience living in rural communities that have been devastated by the advance of industrial farming and its expansion.
