World Premiere of LADY TABOULI this January at Riverside Theatres for National Theatre of Parramatta and Sydney Festival
It is the day of his nephew’s baptism and Danny is godfather. Living back home with his religious Lebanese mother, Danny is thrown into a maelstrom of preparations and high emotions. The family can’t afford to lose face, especially with Danny recently and mysteriously calling off his engagement. But secrets will out, and amidst the sugared almonds and balloon deliveries, Danny discovers the true colours of those he holds most dear. Who do you turn to when the people you love refuse to accept the truth?

Unapologetic, piercing and deliciously funny, Lady Tabouli is James Elazzi‘s unflinching clash of cultures and a searing look at how expectations can eat away at us until we decide to change the rules.

For director Dino Dimitriadis, “James Elazzi is a powerful and vital new voice in Australian playwriting. With humour and pathos he delves deep into culture, unafraid of the prickly questions and conversations. Lady Tabouli is exactly the kind of play we need on our stages – one that has the power to collide the past with the present and one that champions the unheard stories and voices. This is only the beginning for this talented writer.”
