Nothing works faster to bring your mind and body back into a sensible balance than a good laugh. Humour lightness your burdens, instills hopes and connects you with others.

Wilson Gunaratne’s ‘Charitha Atak’ political comedy (the newest version) will go on the boards on 12 February at 6:30 p.m. at the Bishop’s Auditorium, Colombo 2.

‘Charitha Atak’ is the only stage play in Sri Lanka in which one actor portrays eight different characters with eight different voices.

It’s not an easy task to create a political satire. The creator should be well conversant with the political culture, statement made by politicians from  time to time, their endless promises, their idiosyncrasies, strengths, weaknesses and last but not least the creator should not only be witty but also gutty. The international acclaimed actor Wilson Gunaratne meets these specifications.

The show is organised by the Gamini Dissanayake Foundation as a fund raiser project.
