Burkas and Bacon Butties and Paper. Scissors. Stone. be perfomed at VAULT Festival in 2018 - tickets on sale now!
Burkas and Bacon Butties is a heart-warming ‘east meets west’ comedy charting a father-daughter relationship over the course of a year. Through multiple journeys in Ashraf's taxi we explore the nuances of a mixed-culture family in contemporary Britain, the secrets kept and the stories told, and ask whether, despite the differences, family can win out regardless of the bacon butties... Based on writer Shamia Chalabi’s real life experiences, Burkas & Bacon Butties depicts the clashes, compromises and ultimately the comedy that can result from being born into two different cultures.
Burkas and Bacon Butties runs at VAULT Festival from Wed 14 - Sun 18 February 2018. For more information, click here.
Inspired by the Greek chorus and the golden age of musical theatre, Paper. Scissors. Stone. tells the interwoven stories of three generations of women living in Shrewsbury, all linked by a local school. Over the course of a weekend, each character is forced to confront how much they control their behaviour – or maybe how much they are controlled by it. Paper. Scissors. Stone., by Fringe First award-winner Katie Bonna, subverts recognizable theatrical conceits to crack open the gender conditioning we recognize, but don’t always see.
