JLT Comedy on Stage in Dubai, April 2019

Try thinking of how it would be to see “Life in Dubai” played out on stage...

The same people, the same problems, the same context, and the same amazing stories – all with a dash of comedy!

Tall Tales Productions is proud to bring to you an original comedy “Just Like That” (JLT) which is based in JLT in Dubai.

The play was first staged last year in April to sold out shows, and received a lot of love and warmth from the audiences. Thus, due to popular demand the show is coming back and will perform four shows playing from the 18th to 20th of April 2019 at The Junction in Al-Serkal Avenue.

This multi-award winning show is set to enthrall audiences and give them a glimpse of their own lives on stage.

Embracing the theme of tolerance

There is an Emirati writer, a British businessman, a European entrepreneur, a Lebanese air hostess, a south-Indian security guard, and an Indian or Pakistani Investment Banker (you will be guessing the entire play which country he comes from).

Mix these up and voila – you have a floor in JLT! All different people, all different nationalities, yet they come together in Dubai, to end up living on the same floor!

What unfolds is a clash of perspectives, culture, beliefs, and way of life! Audiences will have a chance to laugh, cry, be shocked, and just enjoy the amazing story of modern Dubai!

A play that laughs with you, and not at you

Manju Ramanan, co-writer of play mentions, “Just Like That we have completed a year. What started out as a vigorous brainstorming sessions on various experiences over gallons of coffee has materialized into this pun and fun-filled play that laughs with you and not at you.

"A hugely gratifying experience writing it with the very talented Asad Raza Khan. We laughed a lot and enhanced each character with love and indulgence. Sarcasm, wit, humor, quirks, parodist - it is all there just like that!”

“We received a lot of love on our last outing”, says Asad Raza Khan, who is the writer, producer, and actor in the play.

“It honestly was our most well-received production and the awards were just a cherry on top. The cast and crew brought our script to life making it a story which was relatable to everyone who came to see the production.

"We are proud of this home-grown production which can ONLY be seen in this great city featuring the best of best of Dubai’s entertainment industry! That is what our objective has been for some time now, to bring original and unique plays (like Dubai is) to ensure that we present something new to people, as well as build the local “cultural” depth of the city.

"Being a story of multi-cultural people living in Dubai, this is our contribution to the ‘Year of Tolerance’ in the UAE. It showcases how all of us live together and in harmony – just like that. We are paying tribute to the smash hit play “Hamilton” and “Rowan Atkinson” in the production. Hopefully, we will entertain you!"

Asad has won multiple awards both locally and internationally, has starred in Bollywood productions, web-series, and television apart from the theater.
