There’s probably nothing better than eating. (Except laughing; laughing’s my favourite). Having sussed this, Interactive Theatre International, in collaboration with Bite-Size Plays, launched the first of an enticing menu of short plays, designed to entertain while you dine. Following the resounding success of the ‘Big Bite-Size Vintage Tea Party’ and the ‘Big Bite-Size Breakfast’, Fringe darlings and oxymoron enthusiasts White Room Theatre have concocted another delicious offering ‒ ‘Bite-Size Comedies: À La Carte’. And we’re really privileged, as Brighton is the one and only logical choice for À La Carte’s international premiere.

During this ‘smorgasbord of witty writing’ (Broadway Baby) audience members peruse a menu of plays and pick their laugh-filled poison à la carte. Each show is attention span friendly at under 15 minutes, while you fill up on chicken and mushroom pie, fish and chips or, because we’re in Brighton, gluten-free risotto. A word of warning: interactivity is possible, nay probable.

Bite-Size Comedies: À La Carte’ offers up a true feast for the senses, a buffet bonanza, giggles with a side of humiliation. I’m running out of foodie phrases but you get the picture. If your plans for December mostly include eating cold mince pies in your PJs in front of Downton reruns, get yourself sociable by throwing on your gladrags and getting yourself down to The Thistle for some hearty, satisfying dinner theatre, belly laughs gratis. Let’s hope they’re working on ‘Bite-Size Cocktail Hour’ next…

Win a pair of tickets to ‘Bite-Size Comedies: À La Carte’ with We Love Brighton, answer one easy question here for a chance.

About The Writer

I'm not from around here... Likes: The library, adjectives and adverbs (see above), sugar and my Specialized. Dislikes: When the other Amy Holtz's daughter, in Philadelphia, emails me for a lift home. And most buskers in the North Laines.
