Cultures collide in dating comedy at the Lichfield Garrick

Eve from Sausage and Samosa

Eve from Sausage and Samosa

Cultures are set to collide in a new show at the Lichfield Garrick.

Sausage and Samosa is billed as ‘Ready Steady Cook meets Blind Date in true Bollywood style’ and tells the story of  Eve, an environmentalist and dry-stone wall expert, who is fast becoming a wilting wallflower.

Tired of dating agencies and as a last ditch attempt to find her man, Eve taps into the Asian culture of arranged marriages.

Eve’s fantasy begins as the potential suitors now downloaded from Eve’s website are shown. The audience cast their vote by raising a sausage or a samosa card to choose Eve’s perfect Adam.

This one-woman comedy not only explores the complexities of relationships and different cultures but also challenges the old adage of the grass is always greener on the other side.

Described by The Stage as ‘gently poignant yet always witty – the pathos never once threatens to strip away the comedy’, Sausage and Samosa is at the Lichfield Garrick on November 3.

Tickets, priced £12 (£10 students) are available by calling 01543 412121 or visiting the Garrick website.
