ISTANBUL*

BY STUART RICHARSON

*WINNER OF THE 2014 HOPWOOD AWARD FOR DRAMA

Istanbul was staged as a part of Basement Arts' 2015 Main Stage Season. 

 

Istanbul is the story of Christian, who is prepared to wed Leila, the girl of his dreams, but there’s only one problem…she’s a Muslim and his parents are vehemently Catholic.  Making the decision to convert for his future wife, Christian and Leila plan to tell his parents over dinner at a fancy restaurant, but chaos ensues when Beth, his no-nonsense mother, gets a bottle of wine and anxiety pills in her hand to help cope with the news.  Bitter, biting, and riotously funny, Istanbul is a story about a family coming together…for the end.
