Gandhi and Coconuts


By Bettina Gracias

Asha and Ajay lead a predictable married life. Every day Ajay goes to work, comes home, eats his dinner of curry (always with coconut), watches telly and goes to bed. Lonely and frustrated, Asha escapes to the India of her imagination. Suddenly Mahatma Gandhi, and the Hindu Gods Shiva, and Kali arrive for tea and jelabies. When they refuse to leave, farce breaks out with hilarious consequences. Ajay tries to cling to the wife he once had instead of the new woman she has become but Asha has discovered happiness.

This witty, playful and poignant play asks if it is better to be sane or happy?
