Divergent Theatre Collective presents
“When I was young, AM was Dumplings, PM was Fish and Chips. When I was Older, AM was plantain. PM walnut whip.”
It Tastes Like Home is a romantic comedy musical set in London exploring a love story between 1st generation Jamaican, Camilla and Yi of Chinese descent. As their tentative relationship evolves, can they balance their two worlds of family, culture and values?
Backed by a soundtrack fused with Reggae and Chinese influences, this unique and feel-good multicultural musical explores what ‘home’ looks like when you come from another place and whether two cultures can ever really be in harmony when it comes to beliefs, identity and most importantly food.
Lyrics and Book by Lorna Wells and Music by Eudora Yutong Qiao, It Tastes Like Home returns to The Bread and Roses Theatre, from a sell-out Clapham Fringe 2017 season. It has a two-week run on October 16 – 27 and will be directed by Roman Berry.
Divergent Theatre Collective aims to explore and expose, contemporary social and political issues. We aim to tell diverse stories relevant today, yet with universal themes. The theatre we aspire to create, will delight, unlock minds, amuse and inspire. The company also encourages emerging creatives & performers from different cultures and art forms to collaborate.
