The Lionel Wendt was filled with laughter redently when his Excellency Chaminda Pusswedilla hit the stage with his World Peese Sumitt. The play, written and directed by Feroze Kamardeen was splendidly done with the use of wit and brilliant political satire which kept all those who came glued to their seats in continuous fits of laughter.
The actors did a brilliant job and their skilful use of Singlish and deliberate use of wrong terms kept the audience entertained till the end. Unfortunately this was also a minus point because the many foreigners who came to the World Peece Sumitt didn’t understand all of the humour in the play.
In the World Peese Sumitt H.G.H.E.
Chaminda Pusswedilla aided by his ever present secretary Cyril Nitharamasuffering steps forward to help the Presidents from other countries such as the USA, Israel and Iraq who come to Coconut Trees (Polgas Mandira), in ‘Arsikland’ (our sick land) where Pusswedilla’s leadership prevails, to solve their problems.
‘The audience was entertained from the very beginning till the end and the songs which were hilarious kept everyone glued to the stage. Both the old and the young enjoyed the play. ‘It was an excellent show. I enjoyed every minute of it. It was written beautifully and the actors were out of this world,’ said Hasitha Ranaweera from Thalawathugoda who came to watch the play. We didn’t feel the time go,’ said Eva from Sydney.
“It was hilarious and the most enjoyable Pusswedilla drama ever done,” said Ranjith Thabrew who came to watch the play from Nugegoda.

Is there likely to be a re-run? Hopefully.! -HP
A lovely drama. I cant remember laughing so much at a play. There were some areas that could have been done away with to make it shorter and compact. But overall it was a good play and had Colombo talking. Congrats Feroze
That was one awesome show by lokka. Your secca Cyril Nitharamasuffer ing was hilarious. Superb hints at Western hypocrisy. All the characters totally entertained the audience. I can laugh for years.
The show had something for everyone....
Well done to the crew, director and everyone involved.
I would actually watch this play again if I could. I’ve never enjoyed a play as much. Although it could have been a bit shorter the director managed to script it in a way that the tempo was kept going.
Superb singing by Sunil Bailachakrawarthiy. I hope a DVD is being released it would be a sell out
It was a fantastic show. I just love Nithramasuffering’s character he really kept the momentum of the play. It was also pretty cool to hear that the President and members of the Cabinet were attending the show when it took digs at the present governement. In a ‘funny’ sense the play brought everyone together for a good laugh.
Cheers to the crew and director
