Mind Adventures Theatre Company is to present a revival of ‘Blowhards’, written and directed by Arun Welandawe-Prematilleke, (Paraya, Only Soldiers).
Initially staged at the British Council in 2015, these hilarious spoofs feature a number of instantly recognizable characters from Lankan society.
Each play showcases the opinionated ‘Blowhards’ among us: armchair activists, politicians, upper-crust housewives and trust-fund babies among others.
All three look at social conventions and our own self-image and how they form our opinions and the stances we take on topical issues, the production lampoons the facile and facetious in us all.
‘Blowhards’ stars Ruvin de Silva, Brandon Ingram, Ryan Holsinger, Thanuja Jayawardene, Leah Bazalgette and two new additions to the cast; Shanuki de Alwis and Tracy Jayasinghe.
The performance is made possibly by support from the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH and Sunethra Bandaranaike Trust.
‘Blowhards’ will take place from November 11 to 13 at 7.30 pm at the Namel-Malini Punchi Theatre in Borella.
