Ada udang, ada garam
Banyak orang, banyak ragam
The Malay proverb above basically means that in this colourful world, there are many types of people with many types of behaviour. There are those who feel proud of their mother tongue and will not hesitate to communicate in it as much as they can. There are also others who, though they are well-versed in their mother tongue, opt to NOT converse in it no matter what the situation is due to their own reasons or beliefs.
Tamilselvi, a Tamil educated Tamil, is one such person. Though she can speak her mother tongue, she absolutely refuses to speak a word of Tamil and wants nothing to do with it! If you know someone who is like Tamilselvi and often wonder why they do it, then come and catch ‘Tamilselvi Doesn’t Speak Tamil‘, a stand-up comedy presented by The Actors Studio. This session is not only about Tamil; it is also about the Malayalams, Telugus, Punjabis, Hindis… about all INDIANS in general. It will reveal SOME secrets about Indians. It looks at the attitude of some Indians towards their mother tongue, their love for the English language and for some die hard Indians, their hate towards those who speak only English.
‘Tamilselvi Doesn’t Speak Tamil‘ is a stand-up comedy that pokes fun at some Indians. It is written, directed and produced by an English theatre activist, Morgan. The show is scheduled to perform on the 14th 15th January 2012 at these times – 12.00 pm, 4.00 pm and 8.00 pm.
