'He Comes From Jaffna' directed by Jith Peiris at the Lionel Wendt this week

11 February 2019 - 199   - 0

‘He Comes from Jaffna’ is a beautiful piece of theatre that portrays a time gone by. But, as the cast show us, the deeper message embedded in it is that sometimes it’s ok to have a bit of fun in life too, as opposed to living rigidly. And that lesson will hold true for the generations to come. About embracing people for the diversity they bring to the table. And at the end of the day that’s what makes the world go round.

The production is shaping up to be an exciting one and will be staged at the Lionel Wendt on February 15, 16 and 17 from 7.30 pm onwards. It is presented by the Old Boys’ Association of St Thomas’ College, Mt Lavinia, together with the Creative Arts Foundation.

Tickets for the play are priced at 3000, 2000, 1500, 1000 and 650 (Balcony) and are available at the Lionel Wendt.
