‘Kumar’s ability to showcase the chaos surrounding something as clinical as an arranged marriage succeeds in serving up a lip-smackingly delicious extravaganza.’

Asian Times on The Deranged Marriage directed by Pravesh Kumar

A painfully funny tragic-comedy of marriage and class, at a 1970s suburban drinks party.

Welcome to 1970s suburbia and its heady mix of free-flowing drinks, classic disco and cheese & pineapple sticks.

Aspirational Beverly and her estate agent husband Laurence are hosting drinks for their newlywed neighbours. They are joined by a very anxious Susan, who has been banished from her daughter Abigail’s party. As the evening goes on, marital tensions rise and tempers flare as the characters’ true natures are hilariously but ruthlessly exposed.

Mike Leigh’s classic comedy, which became an iconic TV film starring Alison Steadman, is one of the most popular plays of modern times.

This new production is set against the backdrop of an evolving multicultural Britain of the 70s.
