Everything can be worked out over a good meal! The hopes, dreams and dysfunctional dynamics of groups of diners play themselves out in improvised stories created over the course of the dinner service at The Restaurant. This experimental show has the full cast on stage throughout the entire show requiring extra levels of collabaration and connection between the performers. Delicious!

The Restaurant is one of NZIF's World Premieres: five brand new experimental works devised by top directors and participants especially for this festival. Across the week every cast, crew, and production will come together in unique combinations, creating spontaneous comedy and theatre every single night. With these incredible improvisors and directors from all around New Zealand (and the world!), you’re in for a once-in-a-lifetime treat every time.
