'WHAT THE HELL' Set for Brighton Fringe, 26-27 May
Paolo Serra together with "Otherplace productions" are delighted to present the first "edible" play inspired by Dante Alighieri's Divine Comedy.
"What the Hell - The Gastronomical Comedy" is a finely chopped modern story of an Italian man's journey to London, garnished with the first canticle of Dante Alighieri's Divine Comedy: his epic poem about a journey into Hell (Inferno).
Our modern Dante dreams of becoming an actor, but unfortunately he's a much better chef. Surrounding him are the lost souls of New Troy... will he be able to escape this Inferno? Will he get his dessert? In the meantime let's all enjoy a taste of italian cuisine.
The show is in English and will be opened by one of the most famous Italian stand-up comedians: Alessandro Bianchi. The entire duration is 75 minutes, which will include - for some lucky punters - a taste of some "stage made" pasta al Pesto.
Gian and Louise have worked with TNT Theatre and the American Drama Group Europe, giving performances across the globe. Gian is also member of the STOMP cast - The Lost and Found Orchestra - and Jud has just finished filming the latest feature film directed by Terry Jones: "Absolutely anything".
The director Paolo Serra has worked as an author with some of the biggest Italian comedians from theatre and TV. He's also the co-author of the bestselling novel "Nel mezzo del casin di nostra vita", based on the Divine Comedy of Dante Alighieri.
"What the Hell, The Gastronomical Comedy" will debut at The Warren - Main House - on May the 26th and 27th at 7pm, for the Brighton Fringe Festival 2014.
