Description

Pure comedy and pathos, this chaotic foodless venue promises a large serving of entertainment for people who like their theatre fresh.

Part of the Belfast International Arts Festival

A Big Telly special for Belfast International Arts Festival, there is just one week to get a table, place your orders and experience the gloriously mad ‘Worst Café in the World’.

Masquerading as a café, tucked away on Hill Street in the Cathedral Quarter, The Worst Café in the World mysteriously appears; signage cracked. Step into another world. The chef’s a mess and the waiting staff, well, 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 before, or after, because at The Worst Café, there is no food, not even a latte in sight, and nothing is quite what it seems. With a full menu of twists and turns, stories come well-done or rare, with a range of side orders to thicken the plot. As the service goes into meltdown, the waiters stop waiting and the tables are turned. Customers are perfectly placed for people-watching during an hour-long reality theatre show.

Pure comedy and pathos, this chaotic foodless venue promises a large serving of entertainment for people who like their theatre fresh. Supported by Arts Council of Northern Ireland and Cathedral Quarter BID
