On a stretch of Australian highway, sisters Elma and Nancy run a takeaway joint – their days heavy with Chiko Rolls and memories. While they quietly wage war with their past and wrangle with each other about how to map out their future, a young traveller arrives bringing with him a charm and sensuality that turns their world around.
They start to believe in their dreams, turning their rundown takeaway joint into a restaurant, showcasing Elma’s gift for comfort cooking. Audience members become restaurant guests as the sisters’ dreams become reality and they serve up Elma’s hearty minestrone soup, bread and local wines.
Steve Rodgers’ beautiful writing is perfectly balanced with Kate Champion’s signature movement style in this play about family, intimacy and food.
