CHOPPING CHILLIES

Written & Performed by Clair Whitefield
Directed by Guy Masterson

A MYSTICAL TALE OF LOSS, LOVE & SOUL-FOOD
A hit at Edinburgh 2016: From Kerala to Camden, an epic, mystical tale of love, loss and soul-food.
A cobbler and a cook concoct a delicious transcontinental enchantment as tragedy and chance entwine. Katie dreams of curries and chapattis; Ajna, of holy souls and reincarnation... A delightful, poetic, magical yarn that conjoins the spirit of India with the heart of London.
Directed by Olivier Award winner (for 'Morecambe') Guy Masterson.
