``In Iraq, a wedding is not a wedding unless shots get fired. It`s like in England where a wedding is not a wedding unless someone pukes or hits on one of the bridesmaids. That`s just the way it goes.`` Winner of three Mahindra Excellence in Theatre Awards, including Best Play and Best Ensemble, Hassan Abdulrazzaks first play not only covers an enormous amount of territory, it also reminds us of the infinite human diversities within any nation.
From cosmopolitan London to the chaos of war-ravaged Baghdad, this is the tale of three friends, torn between two worlds, who grapple with their cultural, political and sexual identities and one wedding that goes horribly wrong.
In the last 11 years, Akvarious Productions has staged over 35 plays covering a wide range of genres and
languages of which five have been nominated for the Mahindra Excellence in Theatre Awards and two have won the prestigious award for Best Play.
