What's On

Lady Tabouli
 

Riverside’s National Theatre of Parramatta is proud to present the world premiere of James Elazzi’s dramatic-comedy, Lady Tabouli, at Riverside Theatres as part of the 2020 Sydney Festival. 

It is the day of his nephew’s baptism and Danny is godfather. Living back home with his religious Lebanese mother, Danny is thrown into a maelstrom of preparations and high emotions. The family can’t afford to lose face, especially with Danny recently and mysteriously calling off his engagement. But secrets will out, and amidst the sugared almonds and balloon deliveries, Danny discovers the true colours of those he holds most dear. Who do you turn to when the people you love refuse to accept the truth? 

Unapologetic, piercing and deliciously funny, Lady Tabouli is James Elazzi‘s unflinching clash of cultures and a searing look at how expectations can eat away at us until we decide to change the rules.

Like champagne that’s lost its chill, life can lose its thrill.


Frilly, flimsy and flippant, focusing on frivolity,  the serious business of office politics,...


Suspense and surprise go south in North by Northwest, substituted with cheesy cheer east of Edam.


Infectiously entertaining and rivetingly alive, Wayside Bride is a boldly embroidered quilt...


The lights go down. The cicadas scream. The lights come up and we wait for the play to begin....
