An affectionate satirical tribute to British Gujaratis adapting their Hindu dance festivities to London street culture. A disco-dandia competition brings the Hindu Juliet and Muslim Romeo together in spit of their communities' disapproval."All heart and humour, irresistibly charming and shamelessly enjoyable...a treat" Sunday Times [on Fourteen Songs, Two Weddings and a Funeral] Published to tie in with the premiere at the Lyric Theatre, Hammersmith in January 2004, prior to a nation-wide tour.
