Indian Embrace – A maiden theatre production - Riverside Theatre - 21st to 25th August 2013

Indian Embrace is set in Varanasi, India. The time is now. The mood is uplifting, sometimes comedic. A tragedy bonds an elderly Indian aristocrat and an Australian expatriate. Their friendship is stronger than family ties. Then, the young Indian wants to immigrate to Australia and the trouble starts. There's double-trouble when the Australian family arrive! Old India clashes with modern India. Youthful enthusiasm challenges traditional elders. Flashy business style confronts the establishment. These and other conflicts are revealed by nuance, unspoken tensions and respect for differences. There are many twists and turns as two cultures shed superficial differences to an amazing ending.
