THE SAFARI PARTY by Tim Firth
Three households in Cheshire have agreed to hold a “safari party” – a dinner party, each course of which is served in a different house.
The hors d’oeuvres are served by Daniel and Adam, young brothers whose abusive father was recently shot dead, the entrees by Lol and Esther, upwardly-mobile and vulgar, and desserts by Inga, a seemingly benign antiques dealer. The three households are linked not just socially, however: there’s the whole question of the table … throughout the evening the tale of the table is told, and as each layer and lie is peeled back the truth becomes that much more astonishing.
You have seen PST break down the fourth wall before, but this time you will be invited to see, hear, feel, smell, and, yes, taste the show. This September, bring your appetite as PST presents an evening of food, lies, blood, racists, suicide, shotguns, sheep shears and table golf. Do your best to keep up with the cornucopia of lies served in this bizarre twist on a classic British Farce.
