Very powerful renditions of individual’s particular circumstances

As It Is Theatre makes I Daniel Blake look like a Blue Peter production - hard to hear and very gritty - everyone in power has to see this and then find the energy and reason to do the right thing

This performance is not just a platform for stories but a platform for change

We forgot they were actors and so there was very little clapping. It seemed intrusive. These were suffering people. Representing hundreds of thousands.

Oh God.... this is heartbreaking and shameful - I am ashamed @MenuForChange

Incredibly powerful performance and stories from those experiencing food insecurity from @foodbankasitis tonight. Important messages for us all to hear , reflect and push for real change. Thank you!

What has shamed me out of my recent twitter silence? This. Everyone should see this & take action. Glasgow folk can see it tomorrow. Thank you @MenuForChange & @foodbankasitis for not letting us look away.

I sat in on a rehearsal. Wept twice. This play tells it "as it is". Hence the name.

Well done to all involved for a brilliant, provocative (!) piece of theatre @ChelseaTheatre last night. So powerful to watch food bank stories told "as it is". Keep up the fight. @foodbankasitis #poverty #austerity
Saw @foodbankasitis last night at the @ChelseaTheatre such informative and inspiring work. It’s time we start looking out for one another. This play is why we have Theatre.

Always heartening to see work that actually reflects the regressive and degrading effects of austerity, almost totally ignored by mainstream entertainment, highly paid 'big name actors' and programme makers.

Fab! Just wait till you see it - @foodbankasitis is absolutely game-changingly brilliant!
No need to thank me - all true! Yes - politicians, watch out! But also CHECK IT OUT! Everyone needs to see this and do what they can to be part of the solution

Make sure to grab a ticket for @foodbankasitis. It's a profoundly affecting drama about the scandalous rates of hunger and food insecurity in the UK. Can't recommend it enough

Could not recommend it more - a must see.

Written by the former co-ordinater of, and drawing experiences from, @NPFoodbank I saw this performed and strongly recommend it.

You won’t regret seeing this play.

What an #inspirational person @TaraMosman is! Not only does she have a sellout play @foodbankasitis under her hat (which I massively recommend to all), but she writes impassioned articles like this one which continue to lift the lid on #foodinsecurity in the UK.Have a read!

Was great to see the performance of @foodbankasitis last night - so important to challenge ‘scrounger‘ and ‘fraudster’ narrative when it comes to people receiving benefits
2/12/17 Cole Moreton @ColeMoreton
Saw this stunning play a few days ago. Go see, or put it on. Truthful, revealing, moving, it inspires action to end a national disgrace.

@foodbankasitis excellent & heart wrenching show last night that highlights again that food is no longer deemed a fundamental human right

This week, I saw @foodbankasitis. It's one of the most moving performances I have seen in a very long time. Brilliant insight into the #foodinsecurity problem sadly affecting more and more #vulnerable people. Everyone needs to see this.
