“Slow Food,” presented by Lincoln County Community Theater, is a heartwarming comedy set in a Greek restaurant in Palm Springs. You’ll meet the vacationing couple, Irene and Peter, who are hungry and road weary. They wind up with the world’s worst waiter, and the wait is Godot-level long. But will it end in a lousy meal and a bad tip? Or will the pair leave happy in more ways than one? You can find out this week only in Damariscotta.
