'Happy Birthday Sunita' Teaser Trailer

On a bright blue background are the words 'Happy Birthday Sunita' in red, yellow and orange. Below the title are five people, who are taking a selfie. All of them are smiling at the mobile phone being used for the selfie, except for one person, who glares at it in exasperation. One person is releasing confetti and another is holding a cake decorated with the same words as the title. Small white text around the image reads 'Rifco Theatre Company in association with Watford Palace Theatre' and 'Written by Harvey Virdi, Directed by Pravesh Kumar.'

**** What's On Stage
'A comic family drama that explores British Asian bi-culturalism with wit, humour and intelligence.'
(2014 production)

The Johals are celebrating Sunita's birthday in Mum’s new kitchen, and you’re invited to the surprise party.

It’s not just the dhal that’s bubbling under the surface – with decades of unfinished business, everyone’s true selves start to burst out when they least expect it. And it’s up to the family to pick each other back up and celebrate themselves for who they truly are.

Unexpected guests, butter-free roti and skeletons in the cupboard aren’t enough to stop them busting out some classic Punjabi shapes in the kitchen! Join the Johal family for a wild ride that will leave you laughing, crying, and talking all the way home.

Rifco Theatre Company revives this sell-out comedy, with a new cast and fresh script. Put on your birthday party finery and get ready for a samosa saga.

Suitable for: Ages 12+
Running time: 1hr 40 mins (inc. interval)
