D'Arranged Marriage is a one man show has something for everyone: characters that will make you laugh until you cry, a few Bollywood-style song and dance routines and a wickedly funny look at Indian culture and life in New Zealand.
Sanjay Gupta, the New Zealand born son of Indian immigrants Manhur and Pushpa, is 29 years old, lives at home, works in his father’s corner shop, dreams of a career in stand-up comedy, and strenuously avoids the issue of an arranged marriage. His nagging parents finally get the better of him, but to his surprise, he discovers that Neenu, the prospective bride, is the one!
Unfortunately, complications (and hilarity) ensue… Adding to Sanjay’s trials and tribulations are Dilip, a gimpy uncle who yearns for the perfect Indian woman; the smooth-talking, sleazy playboy Rundeep; and Mr. Dave Patel, Johnny Walker (and the British Empire’s) best friend, who is Sanjay’s potential father-in-law.
With all 8 characters performed by one versatile actor, you have the funniest parody of Indian family life since Bend it Like Beckham, and what critics have dubbed a “roller coaster ride to laughsville.”
Performed in 7 countries over 200 times, D’Arranged Marriage is a proven international commercial and critical success.
