The team behind bAKEHOUSE Theatre Company's latest project doesn't care what your nan thinks is appropriate dinnertime conversation. There's a lot being said about religion and politics at the moment, but there's plenty not being said too. Or perhaps it's just not being heard. The Laden Table won't give you that luxury.

When three generations of two families, one Muslim, one Jewish, get together to observe Eid and Yom Kippur respectively, things are bound to get a little rowdy. Amidst stories of cultural differences and similarities, of old lives and new ones carved out in a foreign country, sits a secret that affects both families and is slowly worming its way into the light.

Devised as an antidote to 'dinner table racism', The Laden Table challenges not only the way society perceives certain groups, but the way in which they perceive each other. Co-writer Nur Alam has said that the project is about fostering understanding, but it's not taking any prisoners along the way.
