A delectable cast, a scrumptious feast for the eyes and a delicious comedy for the mind. The Safari Party is a perfect starter to Tim Firth’s work, which includes hit British films Calendar Girls, Kinky Boots and Olivier award-winning musical, Our House.
Three households in Cheshire hold a ‘safari party’ – a dinner party where each course is served in a different house. There’s Daniel and Adam, young brothers whose abusive father was recently shot dead, Lol and Esther, upwardly-mobile and vulgar and Inga, a seemingly benign antiques dealer. And then there’s the table… Sold and re-sold with an even more elaborate story added each time. As the evening progresses, the many layers of truth are revealed and matters turn satisfyingly messy and violent!
This mouth-watering new play starring Christopher Timothy (All Creatures Great And Small, Doctors) and Jack Ryder (EastEnders) will leave audiences wanting more!
