Synopsis


"When I was young, AM was Dumplings, PM was Fish and Chips.

When I was Older, AM was plantain. PM walnut whip."

It Tastes Like Home is a romantic comedy musical set in London exploring a love story between 1st generation Jamaican, Camilla and Yi of Chinese descent.


As their tentative relationship evolves, can they balance their two worlds of family, culture and values?


Backed by a soundtrack fused with Reggae and Chinese influences, this unique and feel-good multicultural musical explores what 'home' looks like when you come from another place and whether two cultures can ever really be in harmony when it comes to beliefs, identity and most importantly food.
