FUNNY, HEART-WARMING AND MOUTH-SALIVATING NEW MUSICAL, INSPIRED BY NIGELLA LAWSON. BOOK, MUSIC AND LYRICS BY EMILY ROSE SIMONS
When Anna’s estranged mother passes away, she inherits Nigella Lawson’s seminal cookbook ‘How to Eat’. She is surprised to find the book is accompanied by the spirit of Nigella Lawson, who pushes Anna into learning the joys of cooking, failing, and, most importantly, eating. Expect laughter, tears, roast chicken and some very imperfect cooking.
Book, Music & Lyrics by Emily Rose Simons
Directed by Grace Taylor
Musical Direction by David Merriman
Cast: Tanya Truman & Natasha Karp
