Directed by Alastair Whatley

Caroline Mortimer is the nation’s favorite TV cook. In the glow of the studio lights, she has it all—a sparkling career, a big house, a (golf) loving husband, smart kids, and the best kitchen money can buy. But when the camera turns off the truth comes out, and when an unexpected guest disrupts a night of celebration, there is more to spill than the wine.
Direct from its celebrated London run, this searing, sharp, state-of-the-nation comedy is coming to 59E59 Theaters, from the award-winning Original Theatre Company who brought you Torben Betts’s smash-hit comedy Invincible.
The Original Theatre Company is at an exciting point in its history. They are at the beginning of a new journey with their audiences across the country, placing engagement and development at the very heart of their vision.
In 2016 they launched a five-year strategic vision #storieseverywhere which set out this new vision for a thriving and vital arts business that is economically sustainable, making essential world-class theatre and leading the conversation about what works, what’s next and what success looks like.
They are developing a programme of work with Arts Council England (ACE) to help shape the national offer to the regions. They have developed a long-term relationship with always possible (www.alwayspossible.co.uk) who specialise in unlocking the potential of ambitious organisations.
