Conversations about ‘A Long Hot Day’
“My father was only allowed to come with me to Venlo, the border of Holland,” says Anne Ranasinghe. “from there I was alone. All the way to the ship, then to the English port of Harwich, from there again by train to Liverpool Station in London where I met my aunt. I had never seen her before. It was winter and the sea was rough. My father told some nuns to look after me but I ended up looking after them. I was the only one who was not seasick.”
Veteran Namel still active: Revives Nattukkari

At least one survivor of the old brigade is still in action! Dramatist Namel Weeramuni continues to write scripts, direct plays and act as well. He has been busy in the past few weeks reviving one of his earliest productions ‘Nattukkari’. The play is a translation of leading French dramatist Jean Anouilh’s ‘Colombe’, acclaimed as a ‘pieces brillantes’ among his productions. The new production will go on the boards at the Namel-Malini Punchi Theatre from August 14 – 16.
