Nov. 4, THE KITCHEN
Thrown together by their work, chefs, waitresses and porters from across Europe – English, Irish, German, Jewish – argue and flirt as they race to keep up. Peter, a high-spirited young cook, seems to thrive on the pressure.

Dec. 30, COLLABORATORS
Moscow, 1938: A dangerous place to have a sense of humor; even more so a sense of freedom. Mikhail Bulgakov, living among dissidents, stalked by secret police, has both. And then he’s offered a poisoned chalice: a commission to write a play about Stalin to celebrate his sixtieth birthday.

Mar. 23, SHAKESPEARE'S THE COMEDY OF ERRORS
Two sets of twins separated at birth collide in the same city without meeting for one crazy day, as multiple mistaken identities lead to confusion on a grand scale.
National Theatre's
'The Kitchen' shows Nov. 4

Arnold Wesker's play "The Kitchen" starts at 7 p.m. November 4 at the Performing Arts Center.The National Theatre's 2011-12 Season of NT Live in HD theater, direct from London, continues with the funny and historical Arnold Wesker play "The Kitchen." Showtime is 7 p.m. on Friday, November 4 at the Newport Performing Arts Center, located at 777 W. Olive Street in Newport. The box office is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and an hour prior to performance times.

1950s London: In the kitchen of an enormous West End restaurant, the orders are piling up: a post-war feast of soup, fish, cutlets, omelettes and fruit flans. "Fifteen hundred customers an' half of them eating fish. I had to start work on a Friday."

Thrown together by their work, chefs, waitresses and porters from across Europe – English, Irish, German, Jewish – argue and flirt as they race to keep up. Peter, a high-spirited young cook, seems to thrive on the pressure. In between preparing dishes, he manages to strike up an affair with married waitress Monique, the whole time dreaming of a better life. But in the all-consuming clamour of the kitchen, nothing is far from the brink of collapse. "We all said we wouldn’t last the day, but tell me - what is there a man can’t get used to?"

Wesker’s extraordinary play premiered at the Royal Court in 1959 and has since been performed in over 30 countries. "The Kitchen" puts the workplace centre stage in a blackly funny and furious examination of life lived at breakneck speed, when work threatens to define who we are.

"Collaborators," a new play by John Hodge, is next in the season on December 30.
'Collaborators' is next at 7 p.m. December 30
John Hodge's new play is set in Moscow, 1938: a dangerous place to have a sense of humor; even more so a sense of freedom. Mikhail Bulgakov, living among dissidents, stalked by secret police, has both.
