From the team who brought you Torben Betts’ smash-hit comedy Invincible and directed by Alastair Whatley (The Importance of Being Earnest, Wait Until Dark, Birdsong).

Caroline Mortimer is the nation’s favourite 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…

Welcome to Caroline’s Kitchen…

Direct from its hit London run this searing, sharp, state of the nation comedy is coming to The Mercury Theatre this spring.

Starring Aden Gillett (House of Elliot), Caroline Langrishe (Judge John Deed) , James Sutton (Emmerdale, Hollyoaks), and Elizabeth Boag (Invincible).

Prior to a New York transfer.

Presented by The Original Theatre Company, Ghost Light Theatre and Eilene Davidson
