El Diablo – A Comedy Feast!
The multi-award-winning comedy El Diablo hits Melbourne’s Butterfly Club, after touring across the state performing at Victorian Drama League One Act Play Festivals. The hilarious show won multiple Best Production, Ensemble, and Acting Awards.
Set in a high-class restaurant, the comedy centres on an ordinary couple experiencing fine dining for the first time. It's a fish-out-of-water, clash of cultures comedy, sending up pretentious foodies, and shining a light on just how ridiculous gourmet dining actually is.
When average couple Paul and Maurine finally get a booking at the ritzy, popular, five-star El Diablo restaurant, they look forward to hobnobbing with celebrities and wealthy social elites, but their preconceptions are soon shattered, as their evening turns pear-shaped upon the arrival of so-called upper-crust couple Ian and Siobhan.
This is a square peg in a round hole situation comedy, where normal people meet pretentious entitlement, and the ensuing craziness is so much fun.
Observational social commentary, farce, satire, and dark comedy! “Fawlty Towers” meets “Sex in the City” with a twist of “The Castle”!
