The comedy ‘To Be or Knot To Be’ on 3 November

Sri Theatre Company is back with an all new play for theatre lovers in Colombo!  

This year they have packaged a rib-tickling comedy about a young girl forced into marriage with a boy she barely knows. Rukaiya is ambitious and smart. However, she fears that marriage might dampen her spirits.

But what can she do?

The couple must get to know one another or they may head for a divorce in no time. They must weigh love over trust, destiny over free will, the new world over the old.

‘To Be or Knot To Be’ revolves around a Muslim family. It is possibly the first time in Sri Lankan theatre that non Muslims have the opportunity to enjoy the inconsistencies and traditions observed by Muslims. 

Sri Theatre Company believes that this play will change the way people think about another’s religion and realise that in Sri Lanka all religions adhere to a uniquely Lankan set of taboos and traditions.

Produced by Sri Theatre Company in association with the Creative Arts Foundation, ‘To Be or Knot To Be’ is written and directed by Aslam Marikar with music by Jonathan George. The cast includes Ruwanthi as Zeena, Anaz as Feroze, Chanaka as Nazeer and Mithma as Rukaiya.

‘Drama Sri Lanka’ is the Promotional Partner of the production. 

‘To Be or Knot To Be’ will be staged on Saturday, 3 November at 7:30 p.m. at the Namel-Malini Punchi Theatre, Borella. Tickets priced at Rs. 1,500, Rs. 1,000 and Rs.500 can be reserved by phoning Evan on Tel. 0775-434338.
