Caviar & Chips

Reading the press release for Caviar & Chips, you'd be forgiven for thinking this was some deep polemic drama. The leaflet blurb leaves you with the impression it's all about girls on top. The photo implies we're dealing with Dadaism here. To be honest, much as us reviewers like to pigeon-hole shows, it's not that straightforward with Caviar & Chips.

Three girls go on a journey to get out of London, and in the process they explore their own lives through a series of skilfully-played flashbacks. This may sound heavy, but in reality the format is almost sketch show, with fast paced comic routines perforating the linear narrative of Danni, Erica and Michelle's lives. It's a slick production, excellently written and performed. If I had one niggle, it would be the abrupt ending, and the slight feeling that this journey with the girls hadn't taken me anywhere.

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD

Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
