Little Play, Big Talent!

Come discover, how little can be powerful. Short + Sweet Dubai 2016 is the largest festival of 10 minute plays in the world.
Wear Pink
Sit properly. Talk politely.
Study hard. Work harder.
Prosper. Get promoted.
Eat your greens.
Bend carefully.
Fall in love. Get married.
Brush your teeth.
Make babies.
Love, live.
Conversations, the beautiful ones.
The ones that define our lives and livings. The ones that leave an imprint on our minds.
Conversations between mothers are daughters, they are the loveliest of all. Aren’t they? Held over hair being plaited, glasses of milk, class projects; and later as we grow over shopping trips to the mall, cups of coffees, job interviews, diapers…

But in between, what if a mother fails her little girl?

Will a mother ever forgive herself for that? Will a daughter ever look up to her mum again?

A mum-daughter are to be best friends but what if their relation gets tainted with secrets.

Will they find a confidante, in each other, again?

This Saturday, February 6 at 3 pm at The Junction, find your answers as actors Sherry Dang Briet and Mandeep Walia stage Between Us, Daughter & Mother as part of the renowned, Short & Sweet Dubai 2016. Presented by Aish Outt Productions, and written and directed by Purva Grover, the founder & editor, The Indian Trumpet.

We, at The Indian Trumpet, are happy to be associated with this play.

And we look forward to having you there.

Wishing all the participants good luck, and see you in the audience!
