A delicious fusion of comedy play and cookery. Entertaining for all the family!
Two actors play all the roles in the story of a busy night in the local curry house. They are also joined by a chef from your very own local restaurant – offering a spicy cookery demonstration. Includes a chance to share food and conversation with your local chef and the cast.
The story of The Chef Show centres on father and son Abdul and Khalid on a particularly busy night in their restaurant. As they struggle to deal with all of the customers ‘out front’ and the staff in the kitchen they also have to decide on the future of the family business. Will Khalid carry on the family business, or is this the end? Much of the fun of the show comes from seeing just two actors having to play multiple roles – in the same scene!
With special guest chef Syed from the Eastern Balti, Kendal.
“This is a chef’s special, a deliciously funny and occasionally dramatically-daring concoction of a play.”
British Theatre Guide
“The comedy in Stefan Escreet’s slick production compliments not-so-funny cultural issues, especially the immigrant experience of prejudice and the still-powerful pull of family ties in Bangladesh.”
“A stroke of genius. While it makes serious and urgent points that speak to the divisive times in which we are currently living, the play is also very funny. Humour, food and empathy – a potent and winning combination.”
