Rasa: Looking for Kool is a one-woman show written and performed by Rani Moorthy. It tells the tale of Mrs. U, a defiant character whose world has been turned upside down by war, leading her to retreat underground to a bunker she calls ‘The Coconut Grove’. The show unfolds in a secret labyrinth underneath Royal Festival Hall, where the audience play the part of war tourists as Mrs.U tells the story of her bittersweet life, her guilt and her loss.
Earlier on today, we caught up with the show’s creator Rani Moorthy as she walked us through the underground tunnels of the Festival Hall. She tells us how the show unfolds and talks about her inspiration for writing the show. Have a listen here.
