Me and Me Dad

2nd Mar 2010 - 7:30pm

The Arts Centre

Hull Truck Theatre present Me & Me Dad written by Nick Lane

Tickets £8.50 / £6.50 concessions.

A story of friendship, fish pie and flick-to-kick football.

Andy Green’s dad needs a recipe for toast.  He thinks that tortilla fought King Kong and that Tiramisu played midfield for Brazil in the 1974 World Cup. In short, he’s rubbish. Good at Subbuteo; hopeless with spaghetti. So when Andy’s mum dies, Andy does the decent thing – he takes a month off work and moves back home with his dad to teach him how to cook. Fighting memories – and occasionally each other – and risking the sanity of friends and neighbours, not to mention Andy’s new girlfriend, the pair boil pans, set grills on fire and worse, in an attempt to prevent a diet of pickled beetroot and jam sandwiches (not necessarily in that order). Can their relationship survive? Or is this one kitchen nightmare even Gordon Ramsay couldn’t fix?

 

Contains some strong language and is suitable for aged 15+.
