“The anarchists are crazy, but better than the fascists.”

Elle unexpectedly inherits an olive farm in Italy. 
The neighbours are colourful, 
the food is divine, 
but as she tucks into her tagliatelle, 
she finds herself at the table with the ghosts of a barbarous past.

Set in southern Italy, 
The Poor Kitchen is exciting premiere work. 
Funny and deeply moving, the play is a fascinating exploration 
of the personal,
the political
and the pasta!

Praise for previous plays by Daniela Giorgi:

Talc is a well crafted and well acted emotional hour of must-see theatre” Aussie Theatre

Talc is a work of originality and independence…Giorgi has created two intriguingly complex characters in this astute portrayal of human life and desires”

The Blurb

Friday is more than just another political satire – it strikes at the very confused heart of a sleeping democracy”

Lisa Thatcher

“a cutting satire…. Friday should be mandatory viewing”

The Buzz from Sydney

“the play’s structure is exuberantly quick and sharp… The story is told with crystal clarity…. a great night at the theatre”
