I Am Your Love Story

By: Mrs Pramila Le Hunte

Company: Arts

“I’m your Love Story”, is written and directed by Pramila Le Hunte. It is an endearing romance that reaches the heart of every one, young or old. An English girl and boy find each other, and themselves, cocooned in a historical space in Calcutta when Britain move out and the new Constitution of India is not born. They are guided into their future by a mysterious stranger, who will immediately catch your love and attention. The play “I’m your Love Story” will inspire discussions and debates to examine the larger issues that plague our society, like racism, class division, misguided nationalism and the role education might play to prepare young people to combat this plague. What is unique about the play will be the inclusion of meditation during the interval that will be led by Dilip Shankar who is extremely experienced at gathering people most Sundays for meditation. He has taken part before in the prize winning ‘best of show’ play Othello, in Edinburgh. The context of the meditation will go well beyond India and reach out to the issues of our world like Syria, ISIS and refugees etc. We are also planning to use a short meditation during our promotion, bringing it to the streets. Pramila Le Hunte is a playwright/teacher/theatre director who grew up in Calcutta during the time of the play, who gloried in the opportunity New India offered, but cried at the bloodshed that paved its way. It’s a plea to young people of today to plant their footsteps firmly in the shifting sands of tomorrow. She has already brought two plays, to Edinburgh four years ago. The play, “I’m your Love Story” is specially designed to promote strong moral values on the world stage, that is plagued by racism and misguided nationalism. We have risen above our problems and would like to contribute the lessons learnt through the words of Swami Vivekanandaji whose advice is uplifting. Buy a ticket in advance or PWYW at the venue.
