Brisbane Festival and QUT present

A simple, truthful and moving play starring one of Australia’s most versatile performers, Paul Capsis.
Angela’s Kitchen tells the story of Paul’s beloved grandmother, who left war and poverty behind in Malta to give her five children a bright new life in Australia.
This is a play to see with your family. Starting at the kitchen table, it travels back and forth in space and time to reveal a sprawling history and unbreakable bonds.
Capsis plays all characters with incredible style and talent, channeling his childhood self, grandmother, Aunty Doris and even the bingo caller. Co-written with acclaimed theatre director Julian Meyrick, and supported by playwright Hilary Bell, Angela’s Kitchen is an intimate and evocative account of the migrant experience.
Congratulations to Paul Capsis for winning 'Male actor in a play’ (Angela’s Kitchen) and ‘New Australian work’ along with Julian Meyrick and Hilary Bell of Griffin Theatre Company for Angela’s Kitchen.
Please note this show contains some mild language.
Join Paul Capsis in an in-depth discussion about his work following the performance on Thursday 27 September
“Angela's Kitchen is a warm and well-made narrative that balances the universal and the particular, the sentimental and the wryly humorous.” - The Sydney Morning Herald
