Welcome to the website for Ragged Edge.

We’re delighted to let you know that The Chef Show (our very first production) won the 2018 Rural Touring Award for Best Stage Performance of the Year.
The award was presented by Ian McMillan on 27th June as part of the National Rural Touring Forum conference.
Many thanks to those who nominated us after seeing the show and congratulations to all of the creative team.

Earlier this year The Chef Show toured to rural touring venues and studio theatres.  We toured to all points of the compass and worked with South Asian chefs from restaurants local to each venue in Cumbria, Cheshire, Lancashire, Norfolk, Essex, Northumberland, Dorset, Caerphilly, Pembrokeshire, Gwynedd, and Yorkshire.

We’re happy to announce that The Chef Show will have a third national tour in May and June 2019 – more details to follow.

Thanks again to all our guest chefs – stars of The Chef Show!

This is a chef’s special, a deliciously funny and occasionally dramatically-daring concoction of a play.”
British Theatre Guide

“The comedy in Stefan Escreet’s slick production compliments not-so-funny cultural issues, especially the immigrant experience of prejudice and the still-powerful pull of family ties in Bangladesh.”
The Stage

“A stroke of genius. While it makes serious and urgent points that speak to the divisive times in which we are currently living, the play is also very funny. Humour, food and empathy – a potent and winning combination.”
The Yorkshire Post
