Happy Birthday Sunita

The Johal family invites you to a surprise birthday party for Sunita!

Mum’s been cooking all day, and the family has just about made it on time. Everything is set, but Sunita is nowhere to be seen. As the curries simmer and rotis are smothered in full fat butter, years of family drama bubbling under the surface start to boil over. Today, four decades after arriving in this country, things are set to change…

From the producers of Britain’s Got Bhangra and Break The Floorboards, Rifco and Watford Palace Theatre bring you this new comedy drama about family.

Starring Shabana Azmi, Ameet Chana, Russell Floyd, Clara Indrani and Goldy Notay.

Rifco and Watford Palace Theatre are delighted to announce the star cast for their upcoming production Happy Birthday Sunita - a family comedy drama written by Harvey Virdi and created by Pravesh Kumar and Harvey Virdi.
