Originally presented as part of Old 505 Theatre's 2016 Freshworks Program, Patina Productions is thrilled to present this beautiful new Australian play for a three week season in May.
Elle unexpectedly inherits an olive farm in Italy. The neighbours are colourful, the food is divine, but as she tucks into her tagliatelle, she finds herself at the table with the ghosts of a barbarous past. Set in southern Italy, THE POOR KITCHEN is a funny and deeply moving play that explores the personal, the political and the pasta!
