Come to Noosa Arts Theatre on October 25, 6:30pm or October 26, 10am for a magnificent and touching new play by the English playwright David Hare.
Directed by Rufus Norris, the play’s plot follows the story on Katherine Boo’s novel with same title. Set in the bustling India with all the luxurious hotels around Mumbai Airport and its goal of being globally competitive, the story focuses on the country’s irony which is the slums. There, the audience will get to meet certain personas with aspirations of their own.
Mother and son Zehrunisa and Abdul recycles tons of garbage with the hope of buying their own house in the future; 12-year-old Sunil, too small for his age, wants to be as tall as Kalu the thief that’s why he eats a lot; Asha is devising ways to steal the government anti-poverty funds and make it to the first class; and her daughter, Manju, who focuses on her studies to be the slum’s first female graduate. They may have good objectives, but the global recession is threatening to affect the garbage trade, and another slum-dweller may just destroy everything in the neighbourhood.
Get to know the Mumbai slums with this compelling play. Its novel writer and Pulitzer-prize winner Katherine Boo spent three years immersing herself in Annawadi observing and recording the lives of its residents. Behind the Beautiful Flowers has already gained numerous praises from highly acclaimed critics so you should never miss this eye opening play out.
