The Cafe


by Ben Aitken
A political comedy about austerity that puts the Coalition in the Kitchen.
A struggling café is forced to make cuts. A waiter tries to organise a strike. Will he convince a Turk, a Pole, and a trialling waitress that striking is the way forward?

The Cafe was performed as a site specific piece is a real cafe first at the Brighton Fringe then in London in association with the Old Red Lion Theatre.

‘Bitter-sweet social observation… the direction matches the sparkle of the script.’ The Stage

‘Gloriously caustic… Aitken is one to watch.’ Fringe Guru

The Cafe will be despatched after March 19th 2013
