CHOPPING Chillies was a great hit at Edinburgh Fringe Fest 2016 and The Old Courthouse in Antrim, for one night only on Saturday, February 3, will host this popular performance.

This solo show was written and performed by Clair Whitfield and directed by award winning director Guy Masterson.

A mix of prose, storytelling and physical theatre weaving London and India in a tale of fate, friendship and personal transformation.

Chopping Chillies tells the tale of Ajna Jan, an Indian martial artist from Kerala, who following a tragic accident inherits his uncle’s cobblers shop in Camden Town.

He moves from Cochin to London and uses his knowledge of the body's pressure points to alter his customer's footwear, posture, confidence and ultimately their lives.

Powerless to repair his own life, he finds himself challenged only when a young, dreadlocked hipster Katie opens up a cafe next door, and begins making food that reminds him of his lost family and the country he left behind.

This unlikely friendship changes both their lives.

This is an enthralling tale, full of charm and surprises.

Tickets are available from Box Office T: 9442 8331 or online at the Old Courthouse Theatre.

This is sure to be a great night of Saturday night entertainment!

Come along and see for yourself what all the fuss is about at The Old Courthouse in Antrim town.
