The world might have been a stage for Shakespeare but to me it is a kitchen” Arnold Wesker.  In the kitchen of an enormous West End restaurant, the orders are piling up: a post-war feast of soup, fish, cutlets, omelettes and fruit flans. Thrown together by their work, chefs, waitresses and porters argue and flirt as they race to keep up - the whole time dreaming of a better life.  The Kitchen puts the workplace centre stage in a blackly funny and furious examination of life lived at breakneck speed, when work threatens to define who we are.

Dutchman is a play written by African-American playwright Amiri Baraka. It played at the Cherry Lane Theatre in Greenwich Village, New York, in March 1964 and won an Obie Award. Made into a film in 1967, Dutchman was the last play produced by Baraka under his birth name, LeRoi Jones. At the time, Baraka was in the process of divorcing his Jewish wife and embracing Black Nationalism. The play may be described as a political allegory depicting black, white relations during the time Baraka wrote it.
