Kitchen at Rich Mix Theatre: Review for Everything Theatre

I reviewed Kitchen at Rich Mix theatre for Everything Theatre:

Kitchen revolves around Jacinta, a young Brazilian émigré arriving in East London in 1978 to work at a biscuit factory. Jacinta’s British aunt Tracey has taken Jacinta under her wing to help her escape the dangers of life in Brazil. Playwright Gaël Le Cornec uses this scaffold to explore themes around national identity, displacement, heritage, and workers’ rights. That sounds heavy but the characters are richly drawn in a way that shows how universal matters like these embed themselves into everyday problems like being bored at work or falling in love with the wrong person.

Read on for the rest of the review at Everything Theatre.
