The Chameleons are back on the stage this evening and for the following days, with their production of the Tim Firth work, The Safari Party.
The dinner party, where each course is served up in a different house, proves the catalyst for a a fusion of farce and social commentary.
Three households in Cheshire are ready to plate up the grub – Hors d’oeuvres are down to brothers Daniel and Adam, whose abusive father was recently shot dead, the entrees by Lol and Esther, upwardly mobile and vulgar, and deserts by Inga, a seemingly benign antiques dealer.
The households aren’t only linked socially though, which is where the table comes into play – the brothers sold it to Inga, with a smidgen of inflamatory history making for a nicer price.
She then re-sold it with a massive profit to Lol and Esther...
As the food gives way to empty plates over the course of the evening, the layers of truth about the four-legged wooden piece are aired, and violence flares!
