“You’re the one with the identity crisis mum, not us!”
This warm hearted monologue is inspired by Sudha’s banter with her dual-heritage millennial sons who have grown up in leafy Wimbledon while her life has spanned three continents. She invites her boys to ‘crack open a cold one’ and share their views on life. Will her fiercely British sons see their heritage as a place of strength or an unwelcome inheritance?
Wonderfully ebullient, witty, at times wickedly funny and poignantly political, this is a show that crosses ages, cultures, and generations... Utterly delightful, and so, so timely.
