Ms Kapoor’s daughter’s wedding set to make West End debut

Director Archana Kumar and her troupe are set to make history with their theatre production, Mrs Kapoor’s Daughter’s Wedding, marking the first British Gujarati theatre production to grace the prestigious West End.

The dedicated troupe, originally from Harrow, have been diligently rehearsing every week at Harrow Central in preparation for the historic event. The three-month tour, which began on 6 April, will culminate in a grand finale at the famous Adelphi Theatre in London’s West End on 16 July.

This gala event not only promises red carpet exclusivity, but also a milestone, with the show entertaining over 100,000 spectators.

The closing performance, which will be held at the prestigious Adelphi Theatre, guarantees an interactive and immersive experience. Participants can pledge on either the bride’s side (red) or the groom’s side (blue), ensuring an unforgettable evening for all.

Since its inception, the production has been widely acclaimed for its seamless blend of comedy, dance and music, captivating audiences and establishing itself as a cultural phenomenon. Featuring immersive Indian wedding rituals like the vidai ceremony, the wedding ring ceremony and the tradition of the groom hiding his shoes, the play not only entertains but also educates on cultural practices.

Archana Kumar, the creative force behind the production, expressed her excitement at showcasing British Asian culture on stage, saying: “I am incredibly proud of the talent and culture we have at Harrow. This production is not just a show; it is the very essence of our British Asian heritage. We aspire to create more opportunities for South Asian artists at Harrow.”
