Rifco bring home their smash-hit show The Deranged Marriage set in the Slough and Windsor area. Artistic Director of Rifco, Pravesh Kumar, who wrote and directs the play, is from Slough and still resides in the area. He often draws inspiration from the area, holding workshops and connecting with the community to develop scripts and characters.

The revamped comedy drama production follows nervous couple Sona and Rishi, and their families during their extravagant wedding preparations.

Exploring the relationship between tradition and conformity, the story asks whether British Asian adults can still observe the ancient tradition of arranged marriages within their modern lives.

The production previously toured to sold out houses between 2004 to 2006 and is one of Rifco’s most successful tours.

It provides a fresh look at Asian wedding tradition with a uniquely British twist and welcomes the audience as wedding guests to take their part in the fun, tears, drama and chaos of the big day.

Talking about The Deranged Marriage, Pravesh Kumar said: “It’s not often you get to revisit one of your biggest hits. A lot has changed in the last ten years. We have grown as a company and our audience has also grown. It’s very exciting to be presenting a new version of The Deranged Marriage to previous and new audiences. As well as a new script, cast and design, the show will feature creative digital elements to aid the storytelling.”

Several popular Rifco performers return for this 10th Anniversary production including Clara Indrani (Happy Birthday Sunita), who will be playing the part of Sona, and Sheena Patel (Britain’s Got Bhangra, Break The Floorboards), who will play the part of Kiran, Sona’s cousin.

The cast also includes: Ravin J Ganatra (Bombay Dreams, Behud), Balvinder Sopal (The Tales of Harrow Road, The Snow Queen) as Lata and Stephen Lloyd (Jumpers for Goalposts, Reasons to be Cheerful) as Tony. Bollywood personality and host of India’s Got Talent Andy Kumar is choreographing the show and designing Indian costumes.

Rifco, which was first established in 1997, was formed originally as a consortium of actors and directors to create a fresh voice in South Asian Theatre.

Originally based in Slough at The West Wing, they are now a resident theatre company at Watford Palace Theatre, creatively working together to bring audiences relevant and engaging stories which reflect the contemporary British Asian experience.

Their productions include Britain’s Got Bhangra (People’s Favourite Musical – Off West End Awards 2011), Break The Floorboards (Best Live Event – Asian Media Awards 2013), Happy Birthday Sunita and MummyJi Presents.

Tickets for The Deranged Marriage on from May 11-16 range from £13-£35.
