Wilton actor Katherine Kerr performs in lunchtime play

Katherine Kerr of Wilton will play Queen Elizabeth II in an excerpt of The Audience, April 1-3 at Toquet Hall in Westport and April 8, at Fairfield Theatre Company. The show is presented by Play With Your Food (PWFY), a lunchtime theater series, which will also stage Torpid by Craig Pospisil and Long Time, No See by Pulitzer Prize-nominee Janet Burroway.

Lunch will be provided by Terrain Garden Cafe in Westport and Garelick and Herbs in Fairfield.

Now in its 12th year, PWYF provides patrons with a theater experience that includes a gourmet buffet lunch, a selection of one-act play readings and post-event discussions with professional actors and playwrights — all packed into a 90-minute program.

The Audience centers on the weekly audiences given by Queen Elizabeth II to prime ministers from her accession in 1952 to the present day. The excerpt to be presented brings together the Queen and Harold Wilson, prime minister from 1964 to 1970 and then 1974-76.

Long Time, No See is a comedy about opportunity, success and lost connection, while Torpid is a short, funny play about parenthood.

Ms. Kerr  is an actor, teacher, author, and director who teaches privately in New York City and Connecticut. Her Broadway credits include the Pulitzer Prize-winning No Place to Be Somebody, written and directed by Charles Gordone; Night Watch by Lucille Fletcher; Mert & Phil directed by Joseph Papp; and Passion by Peter Nichols.

Tickets for all Play With Your Food shows, including lunch, are $43.
