Having eaten his family out of house and home, nomadic Tarrare’s exploits included taking up with a band of whores and vagabonds; a harrowing career as an international spy; and surviving the Terror on the streets of Paris. While pursuing a cure for his hunger, the disappearance of a toddler caused speculation that Tarrare’s appetite had finally gone too far. (Toronto Fringe Program, 2014).
