Competitive Eating segment in Louisville play

Liz Gilbert, two time winner of the women’s division in Pete’s Grill pancake eating contest, has graduated from Johns Hopkins and is acting in a play called “Game On” this weekend:

Last fall the playwrights met with the apprentices and talked with them about the play’s sports theme. In those discussions, the writers discovered certain ideas and talents that they incorporated into the piece. For example, actor Elizabeth Gilbert, a two-time pancake-eating champion of Baltimore, inspired a segment about competitive eating. Apprentice Bing Putney’s ability to jump tall objects was included in scenes involving lacrosse players.
