Coming Up

By Neil D'Souza

After more than 30 years, Alan is returning to Mumbai on business. He finds the bustling city is moving on and up. Between meetings and expense account dinners, he visits the Auntie and Cousin he used to spend his holidays with, and makes an unexpected discovery about his late Father.

As truths are uncovered one by one, will Alan be forced to come to terms with a way of life he turned his back on? Will he reconnect with the cousin he loved as a brother? A Father he thought he knew, and the tiger that haunted his dreams?

Coming Up is an evocative, playful and magical drama about broken family ties, and the need for connection.

Directed by Artistic Director Brigid Larmour, with Movement Direction from Shona Morris (the team behind Love Me Do and Jefferson's Garden).
