Last Dance at Dum Dum – play about the dying breed of Anglo-Indians living in Calcutta

21st - 24th January 2016 at Riverside Theatre, Parramatta

Set in early 80s, this is a serious comedy about a vividly memorable gang of eccentrics and exotics who are attempting to come to terms with their pasts and their fears for the future. Their world is filled with Violet’s hilarious obsession with all things British, Elliot’s questionable dress sense, Daphne’s weakness for French records and the confrontational outbursts of Muriel Marsh who in spite of her ill health would do anything to defend their territory against the religious fundamentalists looming just behind the garden wall.
