Just Like That (JLT)
19 April @ 7.30 pm - 10.00 pmAED 100
Second night of Tall Tales Productions’ second run of its hit comedy about life in modern Dubai. An Emirati writer, a British businessman, a European entrepreneur, a Lebanese air hostess, a south-Indian security guard, and an Indian or Pakistani investment banker (it’s not at all clear which country he comes from) share a floor in a JLT tower. “What unfolds is a clash of perspectives, culture, beliefs, and way of life,” said the original blurb. “Audiences will have a chance to laugh, cry, be shocked, and just enjoy the amazing story of modern Dubai”. Written by Manju Ramanan and Asad Raza Khan, it’s again directed by Priyanka Johri and with almost all of the original cast.
One of the magpie team went to one of last year’s performances and says it was well worth the visit – “witty, humane, apposite” was his conclusion.
There will be 7.30pm shows on 19 and 20 April and a 3pm matinee on 20 April.
