Top Asian theatre heads to The Public

On Friday 18 and Saturday 19 February, Kali Theatre will be bringing acclaimed theatre production, Gandhi and Coconuts to The Public in West Bromwich.

Starring Sophiya Haque, better known as Poppy Morales in Coronation Street, Gandhi and Coconuts is a witty, playful and poignant play that blurs reality and myth, asking whether it’s better to be sane or happy.

Lonely and isolated at home and bored with the routine of her marriage, Asha, escapes to the India of her imagination. As Mahatma Gandhi and the Hindu Gods Shiva enter her fantasy world, the comic consequences create a surreal, heart warming and hysterical piece of theatre.

The beautifully written production by Bettina Gracias, an Austrian/Indian writer who has written 11 radio plays for BBC Radio 4, seven theatre plays and one TV drama, takes the audience on a captivating journey of imagination and reality.

The UK’s only theatre company dedicated to championing female writers of South Asian origin, Kali Theatre, produce witty, bold, and challenging material that is both engaging and insightful.

Linda Saunders, Managing Director or The Public said,

“Gandhi and Coconuts adds to the diversity to our exciting events programme. Kali Theatre receive rave reviews, sell-out performances and inspire audiences all over the UK with their original and thought-provoking theatre that reflects on our lives today, so we are delighted they will be bringing their production to The Public.”

Gandhi and Coconuts will be performed at The Public on Friday 18 and Saturday 19 February. Tickets are £8 advance, £10 on the door and are available from or by calling 0121 533 7161. Doors open at 7.30pm and the performance begins at 8pm.
