Stage Manager: Janine Diamanti.

CAST:
Lionel Boodlal as Praveen

Mahesh and her mother Rani are Tamil refugees who have been living in Toronto since Mahesh was a child - she has no memory of Sri Lanka, is thoroughly westernized. She meets Chanaka, a Sinhalese post-doc student, here to complete his studies. They fall in love, and plan to marry despite the conflict between Tamils and Sinhalese in their native land.
A moving, often funny tale, full of vivid, nuanced characters with a timely, powerful story. An earlier version of this play was presented as a staged reading in New Ideas Festival 2015.
