The Chef Show – Kirkby Stephen
The Chef Show

The Chef Show

A fusion of play and cookery demonstration, with two actors playing all the roles in the story of a busy night in the local curry house. They are joined by a chef from The Mango Tree restaurant, Kirkby Stephen, offering a spicy cookery demonstration.

The story of The Chef Show focuses on father and son Abdul and Kamal on a particularly busy night in their rural 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.

The Chef Show is written by Nick Ahad. With experience in journalism, broadcasting and writing for theatre and television, Nick has a style which blends comedy and drama with a light touch. As an award-winning arts journalist with over 16 years of experience, he writes for a number of publications on the subject of culture. His work has been published in two books and he presents radio shows for the BBC.

Kate Lynch, Chair of Kirkby Stephen Community Arts, said “It’s a privilege to work with Highlights and Ragged Edge on this production, and we’re thrilled that The Mango Tree have agreed to be involved. Not only is one of their chefs appearing on stage, but audiences can book a ticket which includes a banquet at the restaurant immediately after the performance. This is a real community venture and we are sure that audiences will be delighted with the results!”
