Normally if we see tickets for £2.50, it’s on the Ryanair website, and the tax hasn’t kicked in yet. That isn’t the case here; Theatre Royal Stratford East tickets are just £2.50, no catch involved. Thanks to their partnership with East Village, the local theatre is offering Newham discount nights to borough residents.
This great deal starts on Tuesday 17th September, when audiences across the borough will have the opportunity to see Love N Stuff. This hilarious and uplifting new comedy tells the story of Stratford-based couple Bindi and Mansoor. After thirty-five of marriage, Mansoor is tired of London and has vowed to return to Delhi. But, Bindi is determined to stay and, with help from friends and neighbours, tries to change his mind.
The cast on this fast-paced and engaging production are Theatre Royal Stratford East alumni. Stars Rina Fatania and Tony Jayawardena (pictured above with Derek Gorman, Chief Executive of Get Living London) both appeared in ‘Wah! Wah! Girls’. But this production will truly test them as they will be playing all twenty characters.
Love N Stuff’s award winning writer, Tanika Gupta MBE, wrote Wah! Wah! Girls, and was delighted to revisit the hilarious twosome. She said: “The great success of Wah! Wah! Girls was in part down to the two characters of Bindi and Mansoor. Audiences adored their irreverent and humorous appearances throughout the musical and often clustered around the stage door after the show to catch a glimpse of the couple. Writing a separate piece for these versatile actors was a total joy and will give audiences another chance to enjoy the fun and laughter of Bindi and Mansoor.”
The Newham Discount Nights don’t end with Love N Stuff, so save these dates:
17th October- Crowning Glory
28th November- Dick Whittington
21st February 2014 – Oh what a Lovely, War
Artistic Director Kerry Michael is very excited about these sponsored evenings. He said: “We’re delighted to be working with our new neighbours East Village and Triathlon Homes on this important new partnership, set to offer Newham residents a fantastic opportunity to see great theatre for just £2.50 a ticket.”
