Bradford comedy play is Bollywood in nutshell
10:00am Saturday 24th August 2013 in News
As part of the 100 years of Indian Cinema celebrations in Bradford, Freedom Studios and Bradford Unesco City of Film had a nationwide competition to find the best script for a short Bollywood-style play that could be performed live.
Entries were submitted from as far afield as Zimbabwe and India but one entry stood out: Bollywood For Dummies, by Soneil Inayat, from Glasgow.
It is a 15-minute comedy with three characters that neatly explains the conventions of Indian cinema.
The free pop-up theatre shows can be seen on Bank Holiday Monday in Bradford’s City Park at 12pm, 1pm, 2pm, 3pm and 4pm.
