'A Night to Remember' (याद करने की एक रात): A Chutney and Chips Production 

'The course of true love never did run smooth'

Chutney and Chips Productions present an annual play representing a fantastic fusion of Indian and Western Culture. Full of dramatic twists, comic incidents and dangerous romances, this year's production is not to be missed. With brilliantly choreographed Bollywood, Bharathnatyam, R&B, and Bhangra, the biggest multicultural event of the Oxford calendar is coming in 5th week!

Dev and Hema come to the St. Catherine's College Ball expecting a night of world-class food, drink and entertainment to celebrate the couple's one-year anniversary . They meet up with Hema's best friend Hannah to celebrate the festivities. But when Hema's ex-boyfriend Len comes onto the scene, sparks begin to fly and tensions rise to surface. Soon enough all four find themselves out of the ball and into the darkness of the Oxford parks. Unbeknownst to the four, the ball president Danny has enlisted his friend Puck to play Cupid to the four ball-goers with a bizarre drug puck provides. History, bitterness, romance and passion will collide on one extraordinary night!

Based on Shakespeare's much loved 'A Midsummer Night's Dream', 'A Night to Remember' fuses this traditional storyline with a modern multicultural twist. With a whole host of influences and spectacular dances ranging from classical Bharatnatyam to East-West fusion R&B, 'A Night to Remember' promises to be a multicultural spectacle not to be missed.

Chutney and Chips Productions is a company of over 50 students at the University of Oxford ranging from seasoned actors to adventurous newcomers. Chutney and Chips aims to tell the untold stories, to amplify the unheard voices and carry forward the messages of a multitude of cultures. The 2014 production team wants to portray a story worthy of Bollywood on the stages of Oxford.

Performances take place at 7.30 pm Thursday 20th to Saturday 22nd February with a Saturday matinee at 2pm.
