The Accidental Bride Creative Development Showcase


Welcome to the exciting world of ‘The Accidental Bride,’ a captivating new theatrical creation by the talented Shoba Sadler, a published writer, journalist, and emerging playwright of Indian heritage hailing from the Far North. As a proud graduate of JUTE’s Write Sparks script development program in 2022, Shoba brings her unique voice and cultural perspective to the forefront.


The script, a delightful comedy love story, follows the lives of Anil and Ashwin, two charismatic Indian brothers navigating the challenges of love, tradition, and cross-cultural misunderstandings in an Australian-based Indian Wedding Textile company.


This Bollywood-style rom-com explores themes of love at first sight versus learning to love after marriage, all set against the vibrant backdrop of the Indian festival of love, Holi. The narrative artfully blends traditional Indian culture with modern Australian Indian perspectives, offering a rich and colourful depiction that celebrates collective culture and individuality.


In this exciting collaboration, Shoba will join forces with JUTE Theatre Company and the Cairns Indian Community to further develop the script through a series of workshops in 2024. Two key leaders of the Cairns Indian Community will serve as project consultants, bringing their invaluable insights to enrich the cultural authenticity of the theatrical, choreographic, and musical aspects of the script. JUTE Theatre Company’s role extends to auspice, infrastructure, and providing a venue for this collaborative journey.


We invite you to be part of this creative development process and witness the magic unfold.


Join us at Bulmba-ja on Sunday, February 25th, 3.30pm (please arrive 15 minutes earlier) for a public outcome of the Creative Development.


Experience the vibrancy of ‘The Accidental Bride,’ where love, tradition, and laughter come together in a spectacular celebration of cultural diversity and artistic innovation.


Reserve your FREE tickets through Humanitix.
