Ga re Dumele

A bickering but deeply committed elderly couple in their late sixties face the bizarre prospect of losing their sixth and last born daughter when she threatens them with the idea of leaving home and getting married. They reckon that at the age of 28, their daughter is too young and not yet ready to get married, especially when she has never displayed any fondness for cleaning the house or domestic responsibility. Her dating skills are also questionable as she has never introduced any previous boyfriends to her parents, and is yet to introduce her parents to the suitor who is going to be taking her away… if such a suitor exists?

Ratau, the loud-mouth, fly-toppie, retired builder, and his wife Josephine, a sarcastic former boarding school matron, although not expressly saying so, silently contrive to stop the marriage and hold onto their daughter. They claim that it is not out of self-centredness but rather an attempt to protect their inexperienced and habitually careless daughter, Jane, who can do nothing but read big books, recite big ideas and make little sense to their more traditional mindsets. Ratau and Josephine’s efforts to cling to their daughter always result in hilarious bungles as the battle is often waged between the two of them.
