A new play by Gaël Le Cornec about love, politics and biscuits. 

1978. Winter of discontent. Workers join forces to strike. In the middle of it all, Jacinta, a Brazilian woman arrives to work in a biscuit factory in East London. With poetry and humour she changes the life of everybody around her but will she dare to change hers?  Kitchen imaginatively portrays how two generations of Brazilians relate to London and the experience of displacement.

Gaël Le Cornec is an Actress, Writer and Director born in the Brazilian Amazon. Her fascination for Theatre started as a child where she read plays at night by candlelight.

She holds a Masters in Cultural & Critical Studies from Birkbeck University in London and attended the Royal Court Programme for emerging writers in 2009.

Writing credits include the plays The Late Hour, Under the Skin and Camille Claudel. In 2011 she received an Ideas Tap young people award for Innovation in Theatre for her site-specific play Stories You wouldn’t Tell your Parents. Gaël has recently worked for companies such as Secret Cinema, the Royal Shakespeare Company, Company of Angels and Two Gents.


We launched an open call for playwrights to write a short play inspired by our Brasiliance oral interviews and/or their own experiences of Brazilians in the UK.

3 short plays were selected by a panel of professional theatre makers and will be performed as a curtain raiser to Kitchen on the 6th July at 7pm at RichMix. 

The short plays are Say So I by 
Adanna Oji, Pequeno Hamlet  by Alice Hsieh and 1982 by Eddie Saint-Jean.
