Magic Spaghetti

A play about food and about openness to new things

Magic Spaghetti is a hilarious and mouth-watering story, inspired by the Calabrian folk tale ‘The Magic Pasta Pot’.

Strega Nona is renowned for her handy magic remedies but raises eyebrows with her ‘fancy’ cooking, in the town of Plain in Scotaly.

Amidst rich original songs, one by one the townsfolk secretly pay her a visit. Big Tony only eats spaghetti. Imagine his delight when he discovers her magic spaghetti pot!

One day, Strega Nona goes out and Big Tony seizes his chance to invite the town to a feast. Big Tony is a hero! Until he discovers he can’t stop the pot

“Larger than life characters, teamed with a wicked sense of humour, keep this slick show rolling along, played out with such energy that the audience can’t help but get caught up in it. The production has a life beyond its allotted length, with songs and ideas that stick in your head for weeks afterwards.” The LIST
