The Worst Cafe in the World

The Worst Cafe in the World

The Worst Cafe in the World will tour Ireland in March 2020.

This is a unique production. It is set in empty shops or vacant cafes in towns and high streets. We want to play with different ways of presenting theatre – and theatre in unexpected places! And we want new audiences. So, it’s a cafe. Except, it’s not. Not one bit..

Masquerading as a café,  The Worst Café in the World mysteriously appears – signage cracked, you step into another world. The chef’s a mess and the waiting staff ..wait.

The food is non-existent and the customers are flies on the wall, watching the story unravel in a feast of reality theatre.

Eat first, or after – because at The Worst Café, there is no food, not a latte in sight, and nothing is quite what it seems.

To book your table in the Worst Café in the World, take a peek at the information below. But make sure there’s no one looking over your shoulder first…
