Abu Dhabi: Countdown begins for KCO’s Konkani comedy drama 'Futulli Modki'

Media Release

Abu Dhabi, Jun 10: Konkani Cultural Organization (KCO), Abu Dhabi, is all set to tickle the funny bone of Konkani lovers in UAE with Francis Fernández Cascia’s top-notch comedy drama 'Futulli Modki'. The Drama will be played on June 13 at The British School-Al Khubairat, near St Joseph Cathedral, Abu Dhabi at 7.30 pm.

The organisers, Konkani Cultural Organization (KCO), under the able leadership of CA Valerian Dalmaida have made every effort to bring a Tsunami of laughter in Abu Dhabi with this super hit drama. The Organizers are expecting a houseful show as most of the seats are already sold out and request the Konkani lovers to block their seats as soon as possible for the very few outstanding seats. Inspired by their success in the past and the response they have received from the community towards their previous ventures in the Past, KCO is planning an exciting evening that their audience will surely enjoy and remember for years to come.

In the play, Francis Fernandez Cascia has once again proved himself, with his impeccable comedy timing and excellent punches. There is no wonder that his naughtiness, dialogues, acting skills keep the people on the edge of their toes and do not allow them to rest on their chairs with laughter. The actors will surely make justice to their characters under the effective direction of Joy Paladka. The play, which revolves around the family of rich audacious lady Janet, is one of the best plays of Francis Fernández Cascia which has already seen house full shows in India and abroad.
