Exciting-looking new show ‘Hunger’ combines what might be two of the best things ever: theatre and artisan bakery. Offering a chance to satisfy your thirst for cultural enlightenment and your desire for delicious nosh all in one night, Hobo theatre company’s adaptation of Norwegian writer Knut Hamsun’s novel is staged in the popular bakery E5 in London Fields.
Following the show you’ll be treated to a two-course Scandinavian meal of soup, cheese, some of E5’s lovingly baked bread, sweet pancakes and a glass of schnapps to finish off. It’s a fitting move: Nobel Prize-winning Hamsun’s book is about a hungry writer, roaming the streets Oslo stuck in an agonising circle of being unable to earn money because he’s ravenous and not being able to eat because he has no cash. If the show’s any good, you’ll likely be more than a little peckish after all that starving stomach-talk.
‘Hunger’ runs from May 13-June 19. Tickets are £25 per person which includes the performance, food, and schnapps. To book tickets head to brownpapertickets.com and search for Hunger, or call E5 Bakehouse on 020 8525 2890.
