‘Get Rid of My Wife’ is the story of three physically challenged friends - Shree, Adi and Manav. One is blind, another is deaf, while the third is mute. And to this mix comes Mario, a shrewd creditor who is essentially a goon hired to recover debts from the three. When he realises that they do not have the money to pay back, they are assigned a job of kidnapping a rich industrialist’s wife. Thereafter, it becomes a crazy, roller-coaster of a comedy.

 Staged in two acts, ‘Get Rid of My Wife’ is 2 hours 15 minutes long and is being put up by Ashwin Gidwani Productions. The play is directed by Paritosh Painter who has carved a niche for himself in films, theatre and television. In fact, Painter had written the screenplay and dialogues of hit Bollywood films like ‘Dhamaal’ and ‘Paying Guest’.

Says Paritosh: “I had done a play called ‘See No Evil, Hear No Evil, Speak No Evil’, in 2006, in which the same three characters were there. And that did very well.” Paritosh came up with a second play in 2008. After that he got busy with his film assignments but he sensed the audience wanted to see more of the three protagonists. So he worked on a new script for six months, and that is how he wrote, ‘Get Rid Of My Wife’.

Producer Ashwin Gidwani, explains the emphasis on comedy. “We all need humour to unwind after the daily stress and grind,” he says. “Paritosh’s work is definitely one answer to that conundrum! ‘Get Rid of my Wife’ is a comedy that is guaranteed to make you laugh all through the show.”

 The cast includes established film and television stars Delnaaz Paul, Nasir Khan, Balvinder Singh Suri, Jayesh Thakkar, Kishwar Merchant, Nilanjana Singh and Paritosh Painter himself. It is being held at the JT Pac at 7 p.m. On March 17. Children below
