It's back! Witness the real-life, WaHo-inspired hilarity of Horizon Theatre’s 'The Waffle Palace' whilst eating a waffle doughnut from Sublime.
If true life really is stranger than fiction (re: you can’t make this sh!t up), then we’ve gotta believe the most outrageous stories materialize 365 days a year, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at the local WaHo. Everyone has a Waffle House story, from drunken tabletop karaoke to cops bullying waitresses to babies being birthed in a parking lot; it's the best and worst of humanity playing out within the holy walls of the scattered, smothered and covered.... where the only sins might be throwing waffles and under-tipping. What better setting for an epic local comedy?
That's exactly what longtime Atlanta playwrights, Larry Larson and Eddie Levi Lee, came to with their hilarious production at Horizon Theatre, The Waffle Palace: Smothered, Covered, and Scattered 24/7/365. The story follows John Pickett and his staff as they battle to keep their Midtown diner open against heavy odds.
To their waffle-loving patrons from Scoutmob, they'll be offering up a waffle doughnut (courtesy of another local cult favorite, Sublime
) and a commemorative Waffle Palace hat. Because the only thing more enjoyable than rehashing the real life absurdity that is every day at the Waffle House, is doing so while eating waffles. And wearing a commemorative hat. Of course.
