The Best Pies in London
by Abi Zakarian
Meet Tam Tribune. She runs the best pie shop in east London. She runs it with a fierce pride, an iron fist and a sharp tongue. But the street is changing and old times are giving way to the new; a long standing family dispute threatens Tam’s world so she responds with a Shakespearean force. Revenge, as she is often fond of saying, is a dish best served hot.
Exploring themes of family traditions, community and the rise of urban gentrification and staged in a real pie & mash shop on Hoxton Street, Abi’s new play is inspired by the character of Tamora, Queen of the Goths from Shakespeare’s early play Titus Andronicus.
See the play as part of the ‘Hoxton Path’ series of plays during the Shakespeare in Shoreditch festival.
October 1st – 12th.
