Take a look behind the scenes of Happy Birthday Sunita.

Hear more about the show from the cast and creatives and take a peek at their preparations and rehearsals for the tour.

Rifco and Watford Palace Theatre present Happy Birthday Sunita. Written by Harvey Virdi and created by Pravesh Kumar and Harvey Virdi.

Mum’s been cooking all day, and the family has just about made it on time. Everything is set, but Sunita is nowhere to be seen. As the curries simmer and rotis are smothered in full fat butter, years of family drama bubbling under the surface start to boil over. Today, four decades after arriving in this country, things are set to change…

Starring Shabana Azmi, Ameet Chana, Russell Floyd, Clara Indrani and Goldy Notay.

From the producers of Britain’s Got Bhangra, MummyJi Presents and Break The Floorboards, Happy Birthday Sunita opens at Watford Palace Theatre on 19th September then tours to Wolverhampton, Leeds, Oldham, Brentford, Colchester, Gravesend, Dubai and Mumbai.
