In April, the Studio Theatre will host the puppet show “The Cooks’ Competition” for a four-day run from the 24th to the 27th. Based on the popular children’s book of the same title by Kuwaiti writer Hooda Al-Shawa, the show is directed by Farah Al-Hajali and produced by TAQA Productions.

This delightful show will transport us to the Abbasid era; taking place on the annual cooking competition day hosted by the Caliph during a grand festival at the Golden Gate Palace in Baghdad. During the contest, four talented chefs compete to create a mouthwatering feast filled with exquisite dishes. Yet, as the competition unfolds, a series of exciting and intriguing events captivate the audience. “The Cooks’ Competition” is an enjoyable performance suitable for the entire family.
