Pyar Actually (Rehearsed reading)

Pyar Actually (Rehearsed reading)

Friday 24 & Saturday 25 February 2017 at Watford Palace Theatre

Rifco Studio present a rehearsed reading of a new play by Rifco Associate Sukh Ojla, directed by Ameet Chana.

1987, Bhangra band Premi are performing ‘Nachdi Di Gooth Khulgaye’ at a daytimer gig. Outside, dressed in her best indo-western outfit Polly has been abandoned by her best mate. Nervously, Bali approaches Polly, he doesn’t know her but he knows he wants to make her smile.

30 years on and Polly has a caring husband, two kids, a mundane job at the council and a double garage. She may not have lived the life she dreamed of back when she was a teenager, but she’s comfortable.

Bali is now a successful businessman. Loving his jet set lifestyle he swore he'd never return to the small town he grew up in. So why is he back? Is it too late for second chances? And is love, actually, all you need?

This is a rehearsed reading, actors will be performing with script in hand, without a set or full costumes.

Running time: 80 mins

Recommended age: 12+
