"Simultaneously hysterical and heart wrenching! Bernitt's personal accounts of intense discomfort and personal embarrassment are startlingly universal." - BACK STAGE Organic. Raw. Hormone-free. Vegan. Localvore... MAKE THE INSANITY STOP! In "Yelling at Bananas in Whole Foods," Dan embarks on an epic journey to change his relationship with the food he eats after a chance meeting with a 1990s infomercial health guru. But will his journey into the rabbit hole of the future of food, the effects of food, and on and on, turn into a militant obsession that isolates him from humankind? "Harsh, funny, and unforgettably absurd!" - Minneapolis CITY PAGES "Bernitt could easily leave behind the world of theatre and follow in the footsteps of David Sedaris or Augusten Burroughs. And like those authors, he isn't afraid to share the details that make him look less favorable." - INDIANAPOLIS NUVO Also included in this collection are three humorous short stories and the chilling tragedy "Phi Alpha Gamma," which weaves together the voices of four fraternity brothers as they struggle to deal with the aftermath of a gay-bashing and a brother's coming out. "Bernitt's savvy script offers few easy answers and plenty of twists that toy with the audience's sympathies. A must-see!" - ST. PAUL PIONEER PRESS

Organic. All-natural. Raw. Hormone-free. Vegan. Paleo. Locavore... MAKE THIS INSANITY STOP!

Beginning in Taos, New Mexico, and ending in New York City, Yelling at Bananas in Whole Foods follows Dan Bernitt as he embarks on an epic journey to change his relationship with the food he eats.

A chance meeting with a 1990s infomercial health guru sets him on his mission, but as he ventures into the rabbit hole of the future of food, the effects of food, and on and on, will his newfound passion turn into a militant obsession that isolates him from humankind?

In addition to Bernitt's critically acclaimed monologue, this collection includes the audience favorites "Ghoti" and "This Is Stonewall" to form a trio of stories about learning to take action after information overload.
