Eating Pomegranates Naked

By Andrea Scott

Eating Pomegranates Naked examines two couples and their single frenemy as they scratch the surface of their relationships over too much wine. What do infertility, religion, toxoplasmosis, and ice-cream have to do with Tulipmania? Maybe more than you think.

"I think Andrea Scott addresses sensitive issues in a profound and honest way"

Mooney on TheatreAshima Suri

NNN ", funny, and thought provoking ensemble drama..."

NOW Magazine Jordan Bimm

"The ensemble cast plays like a beautifully orchestrated symphony: by turns subtle, powerful, clever and many layered with a clear resonating melodic line"

Charlebois PostRamya Jegatheesan

"Eating Pomegranates Naked is life in all its loving, fighting, believing - and messy- glory"

Life with More CowbellCate McKim

“Brassy, fearless, and pitch-black… Scott’s provocatively titled drama concerns two couples, one of them biracial, and adds religion to the incendiary ingredients.”
