The Luncheon


by Kace Monney and Luis Amália 


15th June 




Part of the John Thaw Initiative 

Curated by Otherland Theatre 


A surreal two-hander play which explores space, time and matter over the course of one lunch.

Do not come looking for answers. Here as these two men eat lunch, you won’t find them. The duo take you on a visually dense, experimental non-linear ride & makes no attempts to make the abstract understandable.

You aren’t left with a neat conclusion or a clear sense of story, instead it offers sharp highly choreographed fragmented ‘blink and you’ll miss it’ shards of comedy, drama, joy, sorrow, racism, sexism,surrealism, classism and more all through the lens of the acting industry & society at large. The only thing you can expect is for the pair to eat. Nothing else is promised. All we know is that everything will go on as long as they keep eating.



Kace Monney and Luis Amália 


This was a seriously surreal piece of theatre that was fascinating to watch(...) It was really difficult not to be hypnotised by Kace Monney and Luis Amália as they undertook what appeared to be a highly choreographed dining routine. Each move deliberate and thorough‘. - Paul Vale.

‘This bizarre and quixotic piece is an ever-changing play that continues to transform audiences’. Metamorph Theatre.

‘I can say with certainty that it needs to be seen’ – London Pub Theatres
