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


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.

Tickets: $15

Venue: Factory Theatre Mainspace (125 Bathurst St.)
Length: 90 mins
