Waffle House Inspires A Play

The Horizon Theatre at Little Five Points will present the story of a Southern institution.

You can always find some theatrics in a Waffle House, whether it's Kid Rock beating up somebody or a down-on-his-luck guy telling a sad story straight out of a country song.

Now the no-frills chain of restaurants founded in Avondale Estates has inspired a piece of real theater.

Creative Loafing reports today that the Horizon Theatre at Little Five Points will present The Waffle Palace: Smothered, Covered, and Scattered 24/7/365.

Creative Loafing says,

Actor/playwrights Larry Larson and Eddie Levi Lee, the driving forces behind the madcap, chainsaw-wielding Southern Theatre Conspiracy in the 1980s, reunite for a light-hearted look at a ubiquitous restaurant chain.

The show will run from May 11 through June 24.

If you want history, not fiction, about the restaurant chain, check out the Waffle House Museum at 2719 E. College Ave. in Avondale Estates

Normally you need to make an appointment to tour the museum, but the Waffle House website says the museum will be open for free tours from noon until 3 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 7.
