Indu Dharmasena rocked the Lionel Wendt with his comedy ‘Chaos by SMS’ last year and due to the success of the last run, it’s back at the Lionel Wendt Theatre on 11, 12 and 13 May at 7:30 p.m. The show on 12 May is presented by Christ Church Kotte as a fundraiser for the renovation and reconstruction of parish hall. 

This is situational comedy at its best, and Indu Dharmasena excels at it. Pandemonium ensues after an SMS meant for Ram’s latest love interest (Nelum), is accidently sent to everyone in his contact group ‘Little Black Book’ inviting them to spend a ‘dirty weekend’ at his estate bungalow. 

With the arrival of his “lady friends”, one lie leads to another when Ram with the help of his Uncle, Edward and his loyal house keeper, Gladys tries to get rid of them so that Ram can have his “dirty weekend “ with Nelum. 

If you feel like having a good laugh and a relaxing evening don’t miss ‘Chaos by SMS’.
