Celebrating South Asian Heritage Month – SAWITRI Theatre Group, in collaboration with the City of Mississauga, brought back SAVITA WEDS SATISH, (in English), at the Small Arms Inspection Building, Mississauga, for 7 performances, from Wednesday May 15 to Tuesday May 21, 2019. It was an immersive, wedding-style theatre piece. The story of widowed Savita, who suddenly decides to get married with all the ceremony and tradition of an Indian Hindu wedding. Her proper relatives are unhappy for a variety of reasons not least of which is that no one has seen the groom. In these days of social media, that’s a huge cause for concern. Maybe he’s “fat and ugly!”? Or worse!?! The audience were part of the play as the wedding party and every show had the audience members dancing to the wedding party music.

There was a pre-show bazaar that evoked the colours of the bazaars of India, right here in Mississauga.
