INDIAN WITH AN ATTITUDE .... AND A WIFE (article first published : 2007-01-20; last edited : 2008-09-7)

Appearing on the Musho! Festival, Indian with an Attitude .... and a Wife opened with well known local stand-up comedian, Vivian Moodley, as a very sick old man in bed, who was then lovingly and patiently - very patiently - attended to by his loving wife, also old, acted by Jailoshini Naidoo.

Talk about being deaf and non sequiters. They discuss the possible marriage of their daughter. Before the second scene, the audience is advised of the marriage of the said daughter in a voice-over, and we now meet the daughter and her husband, Sabba, acted by the same two.

The daughter transformed extremely well from the slow moving old mother to the young glamorous daughter. To put it bluntly, Sabba has only one thing on his mind (what do most men have on their minds?) and she only wants to get out of it.

There is good dialogue and the play illustrates the lack of communication often taking place in marriage, and mixed messages being sent. It is a well acted and effectively presented short piece which raised many laughs from the audience. Maurice Kort
