The Death of Mrs. Gandhi and the Beginning of New Physics (a political fantasy)


Presented by Everything but the Bard
Written and Directed by Kawa Ada
Artistic Producer Renna Reddie
Starring Elley-Ray Hennessy, Trenna Keating, Tennille Read, with Ellora Patnaik as Malala, and Nina Lee Aquino as Imelda Marcos

It’s 1984. Margaret Thatcher, Benazir Bhutto, Imelda Marcos and a young political novice, Kim Campbell, convene for Indira Gandhi’s funeral. But when the group is hijacked by a mysterious woman named Malala – a time terrorist from the future – they must race against the clock to save humanity. In this hilarious and brazen satire, Dora-winner Kawa Ada fuses politics, feminism (and a little physics) to take a ball-busting look at the women who paved the way. Just like Hillary.
