After winning the FringeNYC Overall Excellence Award and the Creative Award for Best Production at Prague Fringe Festival, HUMAN FRUIT BOWL makes the leap to Off-Broadway.
Ever wonder what goes through the mind of a live nude model while she poses? Structured as a live fine art modeling session, HUMAN FRUIT BOWL attempts to answer that question while it delves into the mysterious death of Renee Monchaty, muse and model to legendary French painter Pierre Bonnard. Part story, part mystery, and part art history, it is a unique and compelling look at the complicated relationships between artists and their models.

"This little play, written so cleverly and richly, performed with such artful panache, and directed with ease and subtlety by Jessi D. Hill, deserves to be seen by art lovers – and by that I mean lovers of the arts – everywhere." -- BlogCritics.org
