Co-produced by Force Majeure and Belvoir
By Steve Rodgers • Directed by Kate Champion and Steve Rodgers

On a stretch of Australian highway, two sisters run their family takeaway joint. Chiko Rolls and reminiscing are on the menu. While they quietly wage war with their past and dream up a brighter future, a young life-loving Turkish traveller arrives with a charm and sensuality that turns their world around.

Their dreams become reality when they transform their rundown fast-food stop into a restaurant showcasing Elma's gift for comfort cooking. Audience members become restaurant guests as the sisters serve up Elma's hearty minestrone soup, sourdough and local wines.

Kate Champion's Force Majeure is a ground-breaker in dance theatre and Belvoir is one of Australia's great theatre companies.

Food is a feast for the senses with an erotic mix of words and movement that will spice and stir in equal parts. Come share a meal in the intimacy of the BMEC Theatre.
