About the Play

Of course plenty does in this fast-moving comedy drama full of misunderstanding and mishaps with plenty of neat twists and a Bhangra dance for everyone to join in at the end.  Everyone loves a wedding, don’t they?

Based on real people’s experience of mixed marriages or rural weddings attended by city dwellers out of their comfort zone, this was a fun, light-hearted exploration of relationships across the divides of rural/urban, race and gender.

It’s was a site-specific show with venues laid out for a wedding reception where the audience are the wedding guests and the show took place in amongst the audience.


highly entertaining 90-minute romp
