THE Birnbeck Actors Company from Weston will be cooking up a storm with its new production of Lee Hall's Cooking with Elvis at Bath's Rondo Theatre on May 27 at 8pm.

Lee Hall’s other popular plays include Billy Elliott, Spoonface Steinberg and The Pitmen Painters.

Dad, an amateur Elvis impersonator, has been crippled in a car crash and dreams of his time spent performing Elvis hits.

His wife dreams of a bit of spice in her life and their daughter Jill dreams of chocolate puddings.

Add to this the young sweet goods supervision manager Stuart and you have a recipe for disaster.

Part cookery course, part philosophical investigation and part knockabout farce, Cooking with Elvis is a provocative and outrageously funny look at disability while enjoying the three greatest pleasures in the world - sex, food and the King.

The play contains adult humour of a sexual nature and strong language.

Tickets, priced £8-10, are available from the Bath Festivals Box Office on 01225 463362 or at
