Award-winning film director Mira Nair is bringing a new musical adaptation of her exuberant and sumptuous film Monsoon Wedding to the Roundhouse, Chalk Farm Road for a limited season from 16th July-29th August 2021

The  musical tells the story of romantic entanglements during the organisation of a traditional Punjabi Hindu arranged wedding in Delhi. The  lavish, nonstop, four-day expensive celebration  has been arranged by upper-middle-class parents Lalit Verma and his wife Pimmi who for the marriage for their only daughter Aditi to Indian American Hemant Rai who is the son of a family friend who lives in New Jersey.  Aditi has only known him for a few weeks and as so often happens in Indian culture, such a wedding means that, for one of the few times in each generation, the extended family comes together from all corners of the globe, bringing  emotional baggage along with all sorts of dark secrets emerging.
