More Information on Monsoon Wedding
You’re invited to the wedding of the season!
Award-winning film director Mira Nair brings her exuberant and sumptuous film Monsoon Wedding to life, in a new musical adaptation, set to light up the stage this summer.
In Delhi, preparations are under way for a lavish, nonstop, four-day celebration to mark the arranged marriage of Aditi and Hemant. Aditi is the only daughter of an upper-middle-class family in India. She is about to meet her groom, an Indian American from New Jersey.
It should be the perfect wedding, but the bride is having an affair, her father is in financial trouble, and as members of the Verma family descend from around the world dark family secrets surface.
Prepare for a perfect storm of drama, love, hope, laughs, and a whole lot of rain!
Monsoon Wedding opens at Leeds Playhouse directly prior to a London run at the Roundhouse.
