Cooking with Elvis

by Lee Hall 

Directed by Emilia Teglia

Sex, food and the King - the three greatest pleasures in the world meet in this philosophical farce by Lee Hall, writer of Billy Elliot and Bollocks.

Two years after an Elvis Presley impersonator is left quadriplegic by a car accident, his wife and daughter learn to cope with the aftermath of the situation. The teenager uses her culinary 'skills' to find meaning in the new family dynamics. Constant squabbles with her anorexic mother reach new heights as they fight over the grown up's promiscuous lifestyle. Meanwhile, a new lover enters the picture.

Elvis' musical glam and visceral wisdom shines throughout. The result is the most dark-humoured, sentimentalist of tales that will stick with you long after you stop clapping.
