This April, May and June, come join us for a revival of our rip-roaring riverside romp – The Wind in the Willows – as Scripts for Supper return to the riverbank, and the adventures of Mole, Ratty, Toad and Badger. After all there is nothing – absolutely nothing – half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats.

Food and theatre collide in Scripts for Supper, where the actors double up as waiters and the food brings you into the world of the play.

This time we are popping up around farms, town halls, and stately homes around the UK. Here today, up and off to somewhere else tomorrow! Travel, change, interest, excitement! The whole world before you, and a horizon that’s always changing!

Performance venues

Director's notes

Scripts for Supper creates brand new adaptations of classic stories, and serves them alongside a bespoke menu inspired by the world of the play.

Our experiences fuse together theatre, food, music, song (and sometimes) dance, and take our diners on a culinary and theatrical journey.

Food is the ultimate sensory experience. It provides us with an endless array of smells, tastes, textures, and sounds, and if good theatre is food for the soul, then Scripts for Supper will leave both soul and tummy very well fed!
