As one would know, Asian fathers are not the best communicators.
Relationships between Indian parents and their kids are sometimes funny, sometimes painful, sometimes poignant – but always complex.
Director and stand-up comedian, Sharul Channa, aims to portray this complexity in her new play – and Father's day special – 'Papa'.
The play features a series of comedy sketches, monologues, and movement pieces that deal with the complexity of Asian parental relationships. The ensemble cast comprises stand-up comedian Rishi Budhrani (Mr. Boo in Pangdemonium’s The Rise and Fall of Little Voice), Amit Joshi (Best Actor, Dastak Hindi Theatre Festival 2018), and Veena Bhangera (Best Actress, Dastak Hindi Theatre Festival 2018), among others.
They will take you through the highs, lows and awkward middle grounds of the relationships with our fathers that we all know and love.
Papa will be in Hindi and English, with English surtitles.
When: June 14-16
Where: Drama Centre Black Box, #03-01 National Library Building, 100 Victoria Street
