THE RASCALLY DINER – July 2022
Who? LAS Theatre
What? The Rascally Diner
Where? Oaklands Park – Outside Chichester Festival Theatre
When? 16th July 2022
What’s the show about? The Rascally Diner is based on the book The Rascally Cake by Jeanne Willis and Korky Paul. It’s about a disgusting chef who makes a grotesque cake out of ingredients including snot and a cow pat. He tells everyone to eat disgusting things. They think the cake is evil and trying to eat Rufus Skumskins O’Parsley (the chef) so we helped them look out for the cake by doing the Cake Check. In the end though, the cake was quite nice and wanted to help Rufus Skumskins O’Parsley to cook nicer, healthier food.
What was really good about it? I really thought that the show was extremely funny and that I would definitely never want or try to eat those disgusting things even once.
It was really clever the way the set was designed because the cake sprouted out of it all over the place.
My favourite bit was when we got to join in with the Cake Check and bang our pans together. I also liked it when the big cake came out and scared Rufus Skumskins O’Parsley.
What could be better? My sister went up to the front in the show and it would have been better if they made her really eat some of the food made from rats!
What my dad thinks? “The Rascally Diner is a joyous bit of silly nonsense, packed with gross jokes about the most disgusting foods you could possibly imagine. There was a good amount of audience participation as well, which kept the children engaged and active.”
