‘To be or Knot to be’ this Saturday at Punchi Theatre

Sri Theatre Company stages their latest theatre production ‘To be or Knot to be’ on Saturday 3 November at 7.30 p.m. at Namel-Malini Punchi Theatre, Colombo 08.

Written and directed by Aslam Marrikar, the play promises to tickle your funny bone where the enactment revolves around an arranged marriage in a Muslim family.

Rukaiya, a smart ambitious young girl is forced into marriage with a boy she barely knows. She fears that marriage might dampen her spirit. But her ambitious nature drives her to get to know her husband and in-laws better, so she could avoid an early divorce. They must weigh love over trust, destiny over freewill, the new world over the old.

Sri Theatre Company believes that, this is the first time in Sri Lankan theatre that non-Muslims have the opportunity to enjoy the inconsistencies and jolly traditions observed by Muslims. The cast for this play includes Sri Theatre company regulars Ruwanthi as Zeena, Anaz as Feroze, Mithma as Rukaiya and the newest member to the cast Chanaka as Nazeer.

Sri Theatre company believes that this play will change the way people think about another’s religion and realise that in Sri Lanka all religions adhere to a uniquely Lankan set of taboos and traditions.

Tickets are priced at Rs. 1,500, Rs. 1,000 and Rs. 500
