(Shika Budhoo and Sandy Bigara)

Beswitched is a new comedy written by Shika Budhoo and Sandy Bigara who also perform in the show.

Best friends, one Indian (Leela) and one White (Pamela). Leela is marrying Pamela's brother Eric and, the morning after a disastrous engagement party, the two friends sit and share a disjointed cup of tea. The result is that, due to Granny Vashti's "Special Tea", the girls swop bodies.. The problem … The wedding is tomorrow!

Filled with memories and flashbacks to growing up in the 80's in Durban, audiences will see "both sides of the coin" and meet many zany and outspoken characters along the way.

This comedy with a dramatic twist promises to have audiences smiling, remembering and hopefully even tapping their feet as Pamela and Leela try to "Make the circle of love complete" and be-switch-ed back before Leela's wedding!

Beswitched from August 16 to September 2 at Catalina Theatre from Thursday to Sunday. Performance times differ: Thursdays start at 19h30; Fridays at 20h00 (excluding August 24 when there is no show), and Saturdays at 19h00 There are matinee performances on August 26 and September 1 and 2 at 14h00. Bookings on 031 305 6889.
