SOHO THEATRE IS BACK IN MUMBAI THIS MAY WITH LIVE AND STREAMING COMEDY

Soho Theatre, London’s most vibrant producer of new theatre, comedy and cabaret, is returning to Mumbai with some of their favourite comedians. Starting Saturday 7th May with the first of three online streaming comedy shows and ending on Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th May with two very special live performances from the internationally acclaimed Nina Conti in her India debut. https://g5afoundation.org/calendar/nina-conti-live-in-mumbai/

With strictly limited availability, this is the first opportunity for Indian audiences to enjoy a selection of Soho Theatre Live comedy specials as showing on Amazon Prime Video UK. BAFTA nominee Nina Conti, regular host of the hit podcast The Guilty Feminist Jessica Fostekew, and the BBC New Comedy Award winner Janine Harouni will be available to watch as exclusively available free digital rentals. https://g5afoundation.org/soho-theatre-digital-comedy/

Back live in Mumbai for the first time since performances in 2019 from Shaparak Khorsandi, which followed successful runs from Ahir Shah, Lauren Pattison and hit play Half Breed, Soho Theatre are presenting Nina Conti. Alongside her show In Your Face being available to stream, Nina Conti will perform two shows at live performance venue G5A in Mumbai’s Girangaon district. Known for her quick improvisation and audience involvement, no two performances are ever the same. Now, for the first time ever she will bring her live work to India. Tickets available now from g5afoundation.org.

IN THE UK

In recent years Soho Theatre has worked with some of the biggest and best Indian talent, producing shows in London, at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and on tour with the likes of Aditi Mittal, Vir Das, Anuvab Pal, Kanan Gill, Zakir Khan and more. Mentalist Suhani Shah has just finished a successful run at Soho Theatre’s Dean Street base and Daniel Fernandes will perform in August, with more exciting names to be announced very soon. Soho Theatre are looking to expand and build on their relationship with Indian artists and audiences through these upcoming shows.

IN THE FUTURE

Soho Theatre are creating a partnership with G5A to employ a Mumbai-based Comedy Producer. Working out of G5A for most of the year, this exciting role will be based at G5A in Mumbai and travel to the UK as part of the Soho Theatre team working on live comedy shows in London and at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. A key part of Soho Theatre’s commitment to championing new Indian live comedy, the Comedy Producer will help Soho Theatre take more live shows to India and bring the best Indian comedians to audiences in Soho and, from 2023, in the 1,000-seater Soho Theatre Walthamstow in East London.

Jobs

‘With a full programme in Soho Theatre in the West End, and looking forward to the 2023 opening of the 1,000 capacity Soho Theatre Walthamstow in East London, we’re delighted to be building our partnership with G5A. The new role of Comedy Producer (Soho Theatre) working from G5A will enable us to present more comedy in Mumbai and Indian performers in London – next up the brilliant Nina Conti at G5A in May, and the very welcome return of Daniel Fernandes at Soho Theatre this August.’
Mark Godfrey, Executive Director Soho Theatre
