‘You’re the one with an identity crisis Mum, not us!’
A middle-aged, middle-class, multicultural mum with millennial sons...
Bhuchar Boulevard presents this extended monologue directed by Philip Osment. Evening Conversations is a meditation on Sudha Bhuchar’s ‘squeezed middle’ life in Wimbledon, as she navigates family, career and investigates her sense of home after returning to India. Sudha's 'Evening Conversations' is inspired by conversations she had with her sons about their dreams and views on life.
Sudha Bhuchar began her career as part of Tara Arts before co-founding Tamasha theatre company and then Bhuchar Boulevard. Their inaugural production, Child of the Divide (2017) set during the partition of India won the Best Stage Production Award at the 2018 Asian Media Awards. The show was presented at Wimbledon BookFest in 2016, before going on a national tour. Sudha’s acting credits include Coronation Street and Disney’s Mary Poppins Returns.
The award winning writer Sita Brahmachari will be hosting a Q&A following the performance.
Wonderfully ebullient, witty, at times wickedly funny and poignantly political, this is a show that crosses ages, cultures, and generations... Utterly delightful, and so, so timely.
