“Rarely have I seen such talent or such intimate contact with the pulse of this nation.” — The Independent

“Delicious… comic, powerfully moving… an absorbing play.” — The Times

“…complex, challenging and glorious…Moorthy is dynamic and warm. The writing is clear and strong and bursts with exotic detail.” - The Scotsman

Spicy stories and masala mania. In a world of chopping and tasting, bubbling pots hold surprising secrets and unexpected dreams. Madras or Korma? Choose and reveal more than you know…

By turns hilarious and moving, ace cook Rani Moorthy employs her culinary skills live on stage, encouraging audiences to eat what she cooks. Razor-sharp observation combines with acute characterisation in a heady mix of flavours to please the most discerning palate. Taking inspiration from the Kutthu theatre style of South India (which breaks conventions of space and the actor-audience divide) Rani actively engages the audience in the production via requests to peel, stir, taste and to even give recipe suggestions.

Curry Tales also uses video projection filmed in India, Malaysia and the UK, and close-up live feed cameras let the audience in on what's cooking away.
