Like Water for Chocolate

Como Agua Para Chocolate
Like Water for Chocolate

LANGUAGE:Spanish

Como Agua Para Chocolate (Like Water For Chocolate) was a mid-scale production adapted from the original novel by Laura Esquivel. It toured to theatres in the UK for the first time in October and November 2006 and again in May and June 2008.

Laura Esquivel is one of Mexico's most celebrated writers and this was the UK’s first stage adaptation of her worldwide bestseller. With an international cast, vibrant text and a haunting score, including live music, TSF brought its flair for visual storytelling to this sensual celebration of Latin American culture.

This gorgeous, sexy tale is set in revolutionary Mexico in 1910.  Tita, a young woman forced to watch her sister marry the man she loves, cooks to quench her aching heart.  Her food stirs all who taste it, affecting them deeply and transporting them into a captivating world of magical realism.
