Biggar Little Cinema Presents:
'The Hundred Foot Journey'

 

 

he Hundred-Foot Journey is a 2014 British/American comedy-drama, directed by Lasse Hallström from a screenplay written by Steven Knight, adapted from Richard C. Morais' 2010 novel of the same name. The film stars Helen Mirren, Om Puri, Manish Dayal, and Charlotte Le Bon, and tells the story of a feud between two adjacent restaurants - one operated by a recently-relocated Indian family and the other managed by a French sous chef (Mirren).

Hassan Kadam is a culinary ingénue with the gastronomic equivalent of perfect pitch. When Hassan and his family, led by Papa, move to a quaint village in the South of France with the grand plan of opening an Indian restaurant in the picturesque countryside, they are undeterred by the fact that only 100 feet opposite stands a Michelin starred classical French restaurant.

However upon encountering the icy proprietress, Madame Mallory, the Kadam family realise they may have bitten off more than they can chew. Outraged by the new arrivals, Mallory is determined to have their business shut down. As cultures clash and food flies, an all-out war escalates between the two establishments -- until, that is, Hassan's passion and talent for French cuisine begin to enchant Madame Mallory, and even she can't deny that this young chef could have what it takes to garner even more acclaim for her beloved restaurant. This starts to weave a magic between the two cultures and, despite their different tastes, they discover an unlikely recipe for success that surprises them all.

The Hundred-Foot Journey was produced by Steven Spielberg and Oprah Winfrey for DreamWorks Pictures through their respective production companies, Amblin Entertainment and Harpo Films, in association with Participant Media and Image Nation. The film was released in the UK by Touchstone Pictures on Friday 5th September 2014, and has received very positive reviews since its release.

Biggar Theatre Worshop Presents:
'A Boston Marriage'
by David Mamet

This amateur production is presented by arrangement with Josef Weinberger Ltd.

 


 

Boston Marriage is a three-woman play set in Victorian New England written by David Mamet, will be the next Workshop production.

Show dates: Wednesday May 20th-Saturday May 23rd at the Corn Exchange.

Directed by David Bishop, this bitingly funny play is delivered through quick, witty Victorian-era dialogue, mixed with double entendres and vernacular expressions, to explore the relationship between the two women and their much put upon maid. Through humour and nuance, the play explores the negotiation, conflict, compromise and reconciliation that arise in a period when women will go to great lengths to find romantic happiness in a male dominated world.

The cast undertaking these demanding roles, are Alison Bishop who will play Anna, Julie Devine who will be playing Claire and Rachael Mutl who will play their young Scottish maid.

Tickets will be on sale approximately mid April, online here on the website and at the Biggar Corn Exchange Box Office.

Ticket prices: £8 Wednesday, Thursday to Saturday £10.

Adult language throughout.
