‘Oozes verve, wit and zany charm. Tasty.’
★★★★ Times

A theatrical jukebox with songs, sexual tension and failed dreams… all served with extra ketchup

Welcome to Eddie Costello’s Roller Diner – a faded Brummie beacon of a deep fried American dream. The staff can’t skate and there’s a whiff of burnt sausages and disappointment.

So when new waitress Marika arrives from somewhere foreign looking for a slice of a better life, hearts are set alight in a fiery recipe of love, jealousy and murder.

Directed by Soho Theatre Artistic Director Steve Marmion, Roller Diner is the professional debut of Birmingham writer Stephen Jackson and the winner of Soho Theatre’s prestigious Verity Bargate Award for new writing.

A savage sweet musical comedy, it opens up the heart of middle England and the universal search for a place to call home.

‘The makings of a cult hit… utterly bonkers but also screamingly funny.’
★★★★ WhatsOnStage

‘Naughty, dirty but delicious… a sharp-tongued classic like Rocky Horror. It’s easy to imagine it on Broadway or the silver screen.’
★★★★★ Upcoming

‘The show is a slice of life that cuts through stereotypes with acerbic humour and wit, tackling subversive themes of political turmoil through satirical song and dance that would give Scrubs a run for its money.’
★★★★ Culture Whisper
