Cabaret, Footprints Festival

Evening Conversations / Life Laundry

BY SUDHA BHUCHAR.
DIRECTED BY KRISTINE LANDON-SMITH.
28 July 2021

Overview

“You’re the one with the identity crisis mum, not us!”

Why do Deep Meaningful Conversations always end in Diversity or Death? Mothers pose over-serious questions to their perennially uninterested children in this joyful double-bill. Evening Conversations is inspired by the difference between Sudha’s cross-continent life and her dual-heritage millennial sons’ upbringing in leafy Wimbledon. Then daughters take centre-stage in the first public showing of Life Laundry, as Shaheen tries to convince her offspring to take her seriously. A hilarious and thought-provoking double-bill.

Sudha Bhuchar and Kristine Landon Smith, co-founders of Tamasha Theatre, collaborate on Evening Conversations. Shaheen Khan (Rafta Rafta, NT) and her daughters Sophie Khan-Levy and Nyla Levy perform in Life Laundry. Dedicated to mentor and friend, Philip Osment.
