SunLive Competition

Food, fun, and feuding

Detour Theatre is bringing the magic of the kitchen to the stage with its new show ‘The Kitchen Witches’.

Isobel Lomax and Dolly Biddle are B Grade cooking show hostesses who have hated each other for 30 years, ever since Larry Biddle dated one and married the other. When circumstances put them together on the Kitchen Witches show, insults are flung harder than food!

Dolly's long-suffering son, the producer, tries to keep them on track, but as long as Dolly's dressing room is one inch closer to the set than Isobel's, it's a losing battle. The show becomes a rating smash as Dolly and Isobel top Martha Stewart and Jerry Springer!

‘The Kitchen Witches’ is live on stage at Detour Theatre from September 7-22. Tickets are available online at, over the phone on 0508 iticket, and over the counter at Tauranga i-SITE.



The Weekend Sun has two double passes to see The Kitchen Witches on September 7 for two lucky readers.

Should the Christmas/New Year school holidays be moved to February when the weather is typically better in NZ?

Yes, that is when I would take my holidays.
No, you never know when there is going to be bad weather.
