Bride wearing veil.

Rishi and Sona have agreed to get married in the traditional way and the whirlwind wedding circus is on the move with or without them.

Their frenzied families go into overdrive to ensure this is the most elaborate wedding ever seen but hidden amongst the show off dance numbers and sparkling saris, a forbidden love story starts to unfold

As the ice sculpture melts and missing Ladoos continue to cause mayhem, the young couple's cold feet threaten to enter the wedding mandap.

Does tradition have any value in our modern lives? Does love have anything to do with getting married?

Based on original script by Pravesh Kumar with additional material by Ursula Rani Sarma and additional dialouge by Apurva Asrani.

Presented by Rifco Theatre Company and Watford Palace Theatre

Running time: approx 2 hours 30 minutes including interval

"A fantastically clever plot, dramatic set, and Kumar’s ability to showcase the chaos surrounding something as clinical as an arranged marriage succeeds in serving up a lip-smackingly delicious Asian extravaganza."
Asian Times
"The vibe is richly vibrant, the set design and lighting techniques are beautiful and the show is all round hugely entertaining."
Remote Goat
"The pace of the piece is perfect, ranging from slow, emotive scenes to Bollywood-style all-singing, all-dancing displays"
