The Rascally Diner
Everybody clap your pans – it’s time for The Rascally Diner!
Cook up a stink as part of Rufus Skumskins O’Parsleys’ kitchen crew or bring a pot to bang and ward off evil cakes in this fun-filled, messy performance about food.
Chef Rufus Skumskins O’Parsley is famous for creating some of the world’s most disgusting dishes. You might know him from the award-winning children’s book The Rascally Cake, written by Jeanne Willis and Korky Paul.
Rufus went viral after baking a huge, human-eating cake from ingredients including snot, blubber and a cowpat. He only escaped being gobbled up by the gruesome gateau because he tasted awful - a result of his foul diet. For ten years now, Rufus has been on a mission to make everyone taste bad and protect them from the creature he cooked up.
For the diners’ 10th Birthday, Rufus is presenting a televised spectacular and you’re invited!
Join LAStheatre for a show that gently explores food provenance, sustainability, and healthy eating in a silly, song-filled, riotous performance for humans aged 5+.
The Rascally Diner is a LAStheatre production, supported by Without Walls and commissioned by Just So Festival. With further support from artsdepot and Arts Council England.
Please note: This performance will be taking place on the Lawn outside, and therefore there will be no chairs. You are welcome to bring blankets and cushions to sit on during the performance.
