On Saturday 23 July, internationally acclaimed production, D’Arranged Marriage, heads to The Public in West Bromwich.
Having been performed across the world in seven countries, the hit production, by Those Indian Guys, has something for everyone; characters that will make you laugh until you cry, a few Bollywood-style song and dance routines and a wickedly funny look at Indian culture and life in New Zealand.
The one man show follows the story of Sanjay Gupta, a New Zealand born son of Indian immigrants Manhur and Pushpa. 29 year-old Sanjay, played by Tarun Mohanbhai, lives at home, works in his father’s corner shop, dreams of a career in stand-up comedy, and strenuously avoids the issue of an arranged marriage. His nagging parents finally get the better of him, but to his surprise, he discovers that Neenu, the prospective bride, is the one!
Adding to the trials and tribulations are a group of friends and family that present Sanjay with a series of complications with hilarious consequences.
With all eight characters performed by one versatile actor, you have the funniest parody of Indian family life since Bend it Like Beckham, and what critics have dubbed a “roller coaster ride to laughsville.”
D’Arranged Marriage takes place on Saturday 23 July, with the performance beginning at 8pm. Tickets are £10 and are available from thepublic.com or by calling 0121 533 7161.
