Indu’s own Jekyll & Hide

Indu Dharmasena is back again with a hilarious comedy to keep audiences in fits of laughter! “Mr. Jekyll & Miss Hide”, a new comedy written and directed by Indu goes on the boards of the Lionel Wendt on September 19, 20 and 21 at 7.15 p.m. The show on the 20th is presented by St. Anthony’s Girls’ College Kandy, Old Girls’ Association - Colombo Branch, to raise funds for their school Sports Complex.

The story unfolds a hilarious sequence of events in typical Indu style: Well known movie director and script writer, Kiran Kalasooriya, takes a bet with his bosom buddy and producer, Sanath Karsigoda, saying that the best way for a man to disguise himself is to masquerade as a woman. To win the bet, Kiran has to masquerade as a woman and interact with his cousin Latha Alwathura and her son Asanka, an aspiring actor, for at least an hour.

So exit Kiran and enter “Radha Tagor”, supposedly a famous film producer from India who has come to Sri Lanka to co-produce Kiran’s next movie. Unfortunately for Sanath and Kiran the fun is cut short when renowned journalist, Veena Liyanasiri, arrives unannounced to get an exclusive interview with Kiran about his latest movie. Before Kiran can tell his cousin that Radha is actually him, Latha informs the journalist that Radha is a famous movie producer from India here to co-produce Kiran’s movie.

Determined not to ruin his own reputation Kiran has no choice but to continue masquerading as Radha Tagor. As one lie leads to another, Kiran finds himself in a rather compromising situation when his jealous fiancée, Karishma, arrives unexpectedly from abroad to surprise him.

Indu Dharmasena plays Kiran Kalasooriya who masquerades as Radha Tagor. Abbasali Rozais brings to life the harassed Sanath Karsigoda. Veteran Priyanka Holsinger plays the inquisitive Latha Alwathura while Rajiv Ponweera plays her spoilt and dim witted son Asanka. The competent journalist Veena Liyanasiri is played by Michelle Herft, while the photographer Rupalal Chitradasa is played by Danu Innasithamby. And finally, Kiran’s jealous and possessive fiancée is played by Sanwada Abeysirigunawardena.

Tickets priced at Rs. 1000, Rs.800, Rs. 600 and Rs. 500 (Reserved) and the Balcony Rs. 350 (Unreserved) are now available at the Wendt.
