Sri: The whole 5 yards - A play about a 62-year-old woman who reclaims her life after 40 years of pretending. Warm, funny and full of nods to a very interesting culture.
Bhanu is getting ready to go to her 40th “surprise” wedding anniversary party. She has the most seemingly perfect life (six-bedroom detached house, two en suite bathrooms, great kids, granddaughter, generous husband…) that is until, the truth slips out. She begins to unravel.

Thank you to Martin for taking me along to this thoroughly enjoyable hour of live storytelling! I have walked past this performance space many times. Just off 7 dials in Covent Garden, this Theatre is casual, cool and filled to the brim with an intoxicating mix of the performing arts.
Unfortunately, due to work commitments, we also had to miss another piece of Theatre on the Isle of Wight. At Quay Arts, Busu and the damask drum promised to be an intriguing evening of reinterpreted Japanese Theatre. 9th August 2017.
