WCC’s ‘Dramatically Correct’ is staging Sam Bobrick’s ‘Getting Sara Married’ on Saturday.
An unmarried lawyer, a crazy aunt, who will do anything to get her unmarried niece married and an already affianced hero who ends up getting bopped on the head one too many times. Sounds like ingredients for a crazy evening? Absolutely.
Sara Hastings is the titular, unmarried lawyer for whom Aunt Martha is bent on finding a suitable boy. In a plot that could be written straight for a traditional Indian family (it wasn’t), Aunt Martha ends up bringing affianced hero Brandon Cates to her doorstep — unconscious and without prior memory of how he got there or his fiance.
What follows is a crazy ride of misunderstandings and some canny match-making by Aunt Martha for Sara. “It in an exaggerated comedy, the sort of humour that we thought would appeal to everybody. It’s sort of like a sitcom,” says the play’s student director, Christina Stephenson.
The play will be staged at the T N Rajarathinam Auditorium in Adyar at 6 pm. For tickets and other details, call 984035 5388
