10 November

Kali Theatre: My Big Fat Cowpat Wedding

You are invited to join the guests at Clare and Arjun’s wedding reception. All their friends and family will be there. A celebration of a mixed marriage between a girl from the country and a boy from the city. What could possibly go wrong?  

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 is a fun, light hearted exploration of relationships across the divides of rural/urban, race and gender.
Audience responses:
'The show was fantastic! The characters were really well played … and by only 4 of you! We really enjoyed the show thank you, it was hilarious.'

'It didn’t feel like a ‘play’, it felt like you were at a wedding reception. The actors were all believable even when playing the opposite sex! '

'Brilliant. Thank you. So good to have mixed race and non-white theatre, rural and country. Loved the variety of the characters touching on so many prejudices. Would love to see your thought provoking theatre again...'

'A BIG thank you for a fantastic performance last night. The players were fantastic. The performance was absolutely brilliant and everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves'
