Radio Theatre Presents: Knife Skills

  KBBI and Bluejaye Productions proudly present Knife Skills, an original piece written by Lindsey Schneider and produced with local talent now available for on demand listening. Knife Skills is the story of four kitchen workers at the edge of the world. A charming executive chef, an ambitious sous chef, a hardened line cook, and an innocent dishwasher form a strong friendship working long hours at a rural deluxe wilderness lodge in Lake Clark National Park, Alaska. Surrounded by incredible wilderness, the kitchen crew prepares high-end cuisine for the über-rich clientele who come to enjoy luxury recreation at Susitna Lodge. When a prestigious group of Belgian royals visits the lodge, owner John lets sous chef Margo take the reins in the kitchen–but when she accidentally discovers her executive chef’s biggest secret, she must choose between her ambition and her friendships before they both disintegrate. Touching on themes of ambition, sexism, and betrayal, Knife Skills is the untold drama of working in the bush.
