Curry Kings of Parramatta is a poignant play that deals with South-Asian migration to Australia and the subsequent establishment of a network of Indian-Pakistani restaurants, concentrated in Western Sydney.
Set in contemporary time, this humorous writing of Sudha Bhuchar and Shaheen Khan raises awareness about how head chef Billa’s isolation can be excruciating, how Yacoub and Khalida are working hard to make ends meet, while Nadim and Mariam dream together to reach their goal in life or when Yasin and his sons have intergenerational clashes about how to run the restaurant.
All this while 35 dishes are being frantically prepared in the kitchen for the grand ‘Curry-O-Ke’ night.
