Don't rain on their parade!

A love letter to Nair's own Punjabi heritage, Monsoon Wedding appeared as a film in 2001, telling the story of one very elaborate wedding - and all the chaos surrounding it! Originally premiering in London in 2021, this vibrant and touching production features a book by Arpita Mukherjee, music by Vishal Bhardwaj, and lyrics by Masi Asare and Susan Birkenhead.

With guests coming from across the country and further, romantic connections spark all over the place - but will love blossom for the central couple, and will they be able to pull it off before the rains come?
