A delicious fusion of comedy play and cookery.
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.
Deliciously entertaining for all the family!
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
“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.”The Stage
“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.”The Yorkshire Post
