Marital Blitz was such a success. I had such sleepless nights building up to opening night, that I think I was making myself feel sick. I just didn't know if the audience was going to like it. Looking back, it was very silly of me because the audience loved it. Durban came out in their masses to support our first production and the feedback we received was amazing. We were touched by the warm reception and even though we were fighting against the rugby, soccer, Lutchmi prayers, Raksha Bandhan and terrible rain, Durban still came out to see Marital Blitz. We are thankful and grateful to everyone that supported us. The messages came streaming in with how they loved the play. We were told that there were no disappointing moments. One lady said that it was magic and if she was asked to explain the play, she would say that words would not do it justice... you just have to experience it! The character of Poona Uncle was a hit with the guys, and the ladies loved the romance. People were rolling with laughter at the very witty script and physical comedy from our amazing cast. Some said that the dances were their favourite while others said that the entire play just came together in a slick story and they felt like they were watching a movie. At the end of the day, all that matters is that people enjoyed it. We, as a cast, got to tell the story of Shalini and Sanvir, Aunty Dolly and Poona Uncle to the best of our ability. It was all worthwhile knowing that there is an audience for witty theatre and comedy does not have to slapstick for people to enjoy it.
Working with these cast members Derosha Moodley, Nesan Pather and Ashwin Singh was pure magic. Creative energy flowed every minute and not a single day felt like work. The chemistry on stage and behind it, was unbelievable. The night of opening night, I felt so nervous but then I looked around and saw the faces of this dedicated, passionate cast. A cast that feels like family, I felt strong knowing that they would be beside me on stage beside me. I could rely on them. We were a team, all with the same vision. Being on stage with them was so easy, so much fun! We had the best weekend ever. Feeding off each others energy and the energy of the crowd. It was just amazing.
