Riverside’s National Theatre of Parramatta presents
Written by James Elazzi
Directed by Dino Dimitriadis

Unapologetic, piercing and deliciously funny-until-it’s-not, Lady Tabouli is James Elazzi‘s unflinching clash of cultures and a searing look at how expectations can eat away at us until we decide to change the rules.

It’s the day of his nephew’s Baptism and Danny is Godfather. Living back home with his religious Lebanese mother, he’s thrown into the maelstrom of preparations and high emotions: God forbid this christening comes second to the Boustanis! The family can’t afford to lose face, especially with Danny recently and mysteriously calling off his engagement. But secrets will out, and amidst the sugared almonds and balloon deliveries, Danny discovers the true colours of those to whom he’s closest. Where do you turn when the people you love refuse to accept the truth?

FYI  this production contains coarse language and smoke haze

Lady Tabouli was developed with the support of Green Door Theatre Company, Apocalypse Theatre, Riverside’s National Theatre of Parramatta and through Playwriting Australia’s National Script Workshop.
