Watermans presents the UK premiere of Primetime Theatre Company

Watermans presents the UK Premiere of Wedding Album, a new English language play by the Bombay based, Primetime Theatre Company, directed by the internationally acclaimed actor & director, Lilette Dubey for one week only.
Wedding Album, a new play written by the renowned contemporary playwright, Girish Karnad, explores modes of courtship in a changing Indian landscape.

This dark comedy is set in a middle-class family home in Karnataka, where twenty – two year old, Vidula is looking forward to her arranged marriage to a Non Resident Indian in the US; her sister, Hema, who lives in Sydney, arrives back for the ensuing wedding, whilst brother, Rohit, is torn between love and success.

The play explores traditional Indian wedding rituals in a globalised technologically savvy India, where protected by the gaze of the family, a couple would originally meet under a wedding podium but today, SMS, email and Skype connects them even before they have got hitched!

Wedding Album is a comedy satire that gives us a peep into urban life and strife as Indian society continues to evolve and change. Each snapshot shows members of the family frozen in a contemporary projection of respectability, but underneath is a double image with a penumbra of hidden life!

Featuring a cast of nine actors, Wedding Album is a poignant tale of love and longing in a shining India. Tickets are on sale now and sponsorship packages available.
Suitable for 12+ years
