9780140480740: Three Plays: Five Finger Exercise/ The Kitchen/ The Hamlet of Stepney Green

Sir Arnold Wesker's perennially popular play The Kitchen will be revived at the National Theatre in September 2011. Set in the basement kitchen of a large restaurant, thirty chefs, waitresses, and kitchen porters, slowly begin the day preparing to serve lunch. The central story tells of a frustrated love affair between a high-spirited, young, German chef, Peter, and a married English waitress, Monique.

Review:

Flashing, illuminating, moving, funny, passionate, authentic… --Bernard Levin - Daily Express

…achieves something that few playwrights have ever attempted; it dramatizes work…rising at the end of the first half to a climactic lunch-hour frenzy that is the fullest theatrical expression I have ever seen of the laws of supply and demand. --Kenneth Tynan - The Observer

…achieves something that few playwrights have ever attempted; it dramatizes work…rising at the end of the first half to a climactic lunch-hour frenzy that is the fullest theatrical expression I have ever seen of the laws of supply and demand. --Kenneth Tynan - The Observer

... a masterpiece of construction. This National revival confirms its exhilarating theatrical cosmopolitanism as well as its historical poignancy and significance. - 4* --The Independent

[Wesker] is a dramatist of heart and humanity... a drama of daring ambition and technical invention [The production] grips throughout. 4* Stars --The Telegraph
