Autumn Theatre Season 2019
World premieres, Edinburgh transfers and returning Soho favourites - a new season of surprise and subversion.
“Being Indian, the Indian accent and our life has always been about the punch line, never the perspective. It’s always about a funny relative, a Simpsons joke or some sort of stereotype. I’m looking forward to the crowds hearing about their lives from an Indian perspective, albeit an edgy one.”
Rapidly growing to international stardom after sell-out shows in the USA and touring worldwide, Vir Das has also made his way in Bollywood, starring in India’s first Zombie film, Go Goa Gone, and films BadMaash Company, Delhi Belly, and Revolver Rani.
Comedy and unparalleled story-telling from his uniquely Indian perspective, Vir shares stories about growing up in India to studying in America, Indian culture to world politics, losing virginity to cancelling weddings, drug addiction to flying an Air India plane…
‘The material shines… He’s a consummate pro, giving arena quality craft to a fringe-sized room.’
‘The biggest star at the fringe.’
‘Nobody owns the stage like Vir Das.’
