The Safari Party
by Tim Firth
Directed by Laurence Cann and Neil Oxley
8 February 2011 - 12 February 2011
"Safari party" - a dinner party where each course is served in a different house.
The hors d'oeuvres are served by brothers Daniel and Adam, the entrees by Lol and Esther, an upwardly mobile couple and deserts by Inga, a seemingly benign antiques dealer. The three households aren---t just linked socially, however: there's the whole question of the table. A touching and funny play about truth, reality, attitudes and relationships - and a table. The truth will out - or will it?
The action of the play takes place in 3 different households on a single night. It is set round Manchester way and takes place in the present day, or sometime very like it.
