On your mark, get set, bake!
Join us under the big tent on the lawn for Britain’s Baking Challenge, a playful new comedy inspired by The Great British Baking Show that features a real baking on stage as four actors whisk, knead, and pour themselves into a dish suggested by the audience before subjecting their work to the subtle scrutiny of two remarkably placid judges.
While viewers of the hit PBS show will recognize a familiar British civility among the contestants, this improvised bake-off really turns up the heat by requiring all four competing characters to fetch a theme for their delicacy from a member of the audience before turning on their ovens and getting to work. Can’t you smell the warm, flaky comedy already?
Every performance is sure to contain all new twists and turnovers as the cooks prove they have what it takes to win both the affection of the crowd and the praise of the judges. The contestant that can maintain their modesty and plate their pastry without disaster will be named the winner of Britain’s Baking Challenge – until the next performance, of course!
