|THE STREET PRESENTS ANGELA'S KITCHEN written by Paul Capsis & Julian Meyrick performed by Paul Capsis|
A SOLO AT THE STREET PERFORMANCE
"No matter what was going on in my life, if I just sat with my grandmother, just sat next to her, I felt instant calm, instant safety."
In 1948 Angela left Malta. Having gathered up five children, she sailed out on the Strathnavar, leaving poverty and the war behind. Her destination: Australia, In Surrey Hills, she could build a bright new life.
Back in Malta, someone else has made a journey. Making his way along Kalkara's glistening harbour side, a young man with flowing black hair has returned to claim his past. Paul Capsis is walking home.
Angela's Kitchen is an astonishingly evocative piece of autobiographical theatre from one of Australia's most celebrated performers. A journey that begins at a kitchen table becomes a portrait, not just of a much loved matriarch, but a whole generation.
"At the end, he shares his most precious memories with the audience, many of whom were holding back tears. Deeply affecting theatre". Sun Herald
