A FREE AUDIO MONOLOGUE

OF GOSSIP

IF THESE SARIS COULD TALK

"All literature is gossip."

Truman Capote

 

For the amount of time it takes to sip a cup of masala chai,  listen to "If These Saris Could Talk: A Flash Monologue of Gossip" - a  mini-monologue which introduces you to Silky Aunty, an eccentric, funny, and crazy Indian woman of a certain age.  Performed by British actress Zehra Naqvi, Silky Aunty is a woman who hopes to dish the dirt about the hidden, crazy lives of Indian women she knows. What is her loony, irrational rationale for dishing about these women? The men in their lives had dismissed her, badly.  Hear her begin the tale of one Leenu Murthy and her hirsute husband.

 

In this blink-and-you'll-miss glimpse into the mind-- and wardrobe -- of a town gossip right before she begins sermonizing, discover the brief birth of a discourse from a mad woman who wants to unwrap saris covering not only naked bodies, but naked truths.
