Harsh satire on Sri Lanka politics proves hit

Theatregoers say play provides a chance to let off steam about frustrations over local politics.

    A humorous but hard hitting satire on the country's political scene is proving highly popular in Sri Lanka.  

    Those attending the play say "The Hon Chaminda Pusswedilla" provides a chance to let off steam about frustrations over local politicians and political developments.

    The play is also seen as carving a niche as a hard-hitting forum for political commentary in the Asian country.
