Mehndi Night

Director Julia Voce
Edinburgh Festival play for Mulberry School
At a traditional Bengali celebration the night before a wedding, the women of the community gather to sing, dance and bless the bride-to-be. But when an uninvited guest turns up bringing painful memories from the past, everyone present is forced to confront their own fears, prejudices and longings.
Mehndi Night

a 35-minute meditation on acceptance and reconciliation that's light, bright and is blessed with theatrical verve. Neil Cooper
The Herald

it is performed with such glee and openness that you cannot help falling for its slight but undoubted charm... The piece not only has a whiff of authenticity but combines a poetic sensibility with clear-eyed realism.
