About

What would you take if you were forced to leave home with no hope of returning? How would you make a fresh start somewhere completely new? This is the true story of one woman who loses everything.

Remembering the tastes and aromas of her mother’s kitchen with live cooking on stage, she recreates the dishes of her childhood and homeland, building a new life and community around food.


Written by award-winning Hannah Khalil, directed by Chris White and starring Isabella Nefar (Salome, National Theatre) this life-affirming new play chronicles the journey of one woman’s quest to start again.

My English Persian Kitchen is part of the Traverse's £1 Ticket Project.

Production supported by the Institute for Advanced Studies in the Humanities at The University of Edinburgh.

The Traverse Theatre is funded by Creative Scotland and the City of Edinburgh Council.
