Sure to have you chuckling in the isles, What You Fancy takes you to a world ruled by superficiality, money and power, taking the works of Shakespeare’s TWELTH NIGHT and adding a contemporary Asian twist.
Set in our modern celebrity obsessed society, this vibrant show reveals the underdogs who control the brightest stars in Bollywood. Former Miss World and hottest Indian sensation Olivia Kapoor has been stalked, harassed and thoroughly humiliated on a chat show by her co-star Dhruv Raj Singh, the King of Bollywood. Depressed and angry she meets Casim who re-awakens her spirit and passion. Little does she know that Casim is really a woman in disguise, who is in love with Dhruv Raj Singh! While this love story takes place we also enter the frothy underworld of Olivia’s servants, where a war is brewing to gain power and love.
