Santa Monica Playhouse is proud to present Hollywood’s uniquely hilarious and heartbreaking ­hour-long dark comedy, set in South London! It’s speed-dating on crack, with a heartfelt backstory of discrimination, human sexuality and multiculturalism - you’ve never seen anything like it.

'a dynamic performance of a woman in chaos'  Ayndrilla Singharay, Pulse Connects

Written and performed by British Aisha Kumari (A Midsummer Night’s Dream; Fighting for her Family; Domestic Crusaders; Waffle the Wonder Dog; East is East), Treya’s Last Dance is a rollercoaster ride through the life, love and cultural struggles of Treya. The show is a superb addition to the growing roster of diaspora-related stories like Wedding Season, Indian Matchmaking.

'whip-crack sharp, funny and touching … convincing and deeply charming' Ettie Bailey King, A Younger Theatre

Unique, modern, a hit in NY & London, Treya delves into homophobia, culture clash and female sexuality in hilarious, brave and poignant ways as she struggles to preserve and adapt identity within swirling change: an ongoing topic familiar to us all, whatever our backgrounds.

'an incredible one-hour performance' Chris Daniels, The Show Report

Written & performed by Aisha Kumari • Voices by Arun Kamath, Michelle Cardno and Don Donelley • Original music by Archita Kumar
