There’s a proficient underground unseen pool of unimaginable movie and theatre makers in London that do not have entry or alternative, and AE is an try to bridge that hole. Casserole is a results of that try. It was made in collaboration with each scratch night time attendee in addition to its three co-writers/actors. It’s about loss of life and love, and was made with love that nearly killed us. It’s actors in a room speaking, good materials, coronary heart, and slightly props, and it is f*cking nice.

Mehmet Ergen, the inventive director of The Arcola Theatre, feedback, Casserole hit all people who was on the work-in-progress exhibiting, within the intestine. A stage of performing, depth and humour I have not seen for a really very long time. It made it a straightforward resolution for me to supply Actors East a switch to the Arcola.

BAFTA award-winning actor, author and director Ray Panthaki feedback, I had the chance to be invited to observe Casserole throughout its early stage as an improvised work in progress at Actors East. It was extremely charming; filled with real humour and uncooked emotion. An ideal piece of indie theatre.
