About the Show

Part of FringeNYC: Faced with Croydon's mankiest speed-dates, Treya blunders into some messy truths - her brother's death; two lovably eccentric parents; the fallout from a British/Indian culture clash. A hilarious, awkward, heart-wrenching tale of love and loss in London.

Clever, Delightful, Resonant

See it if You are young, single and lovelorn & feel the world is a f***ed up place and the roundness of your pegs will never fit into its square holes

Don't see it if You are old and hard of hearing... The actress is dynamic, but speaks at lightning speed and her heavy accent can be challenging at times.

Theatre is Easy
August 21st, 2016

“Bhatt excels in creating a world of diverse people even though there is just one person on stage. Although It is a pleasure to watch the journey of her characters as she moves from the comic to the profound, there are shifts which happen too quickly and the foreshadowing borders on excessive. Perhaps this is because fifty minutes is an insufficient amount of time for a production with ambitious themes like culture shock and young death...A longer run time would ultimately benefit the piece."

NY Theatre Guide
August 15th, 2016

“Bhatt is an electric performer, showing her intelligence in every emotional gear shift and in her ability to play superb comedy, as well as complex grief. She is an accomplished physical performer, able to inhabit the many characters she plays with believability and well-observed characterization...Director Tiffany Nicole Greene has ensured there are not only moments of frenetic hilarity, but also ones of stillness and shattering honesty...This production is essential festival fare.”

For a previous production

"In the form of dramatic monologue with its wandering reminiscences, careful pacing of revelations and bittersweet realism, it somewhat strangely echoes Bennett’s 'Talking Heads'...At times it feels as though there is too much peripheral baggage, yet the central flow of both Bhatt’s writing and performance is superb. Notably, she is deft at managing cultural stereotypes in a way that avoids both racial profiling and preening political correctness – a rare skill indeed."

Pulse - Asian Music and Dance
February 7th, 2016
For a previous production

"Bhatt’s writing is consistently sharp...The speed-dating format is a largely effective device but the constant interruption prevents a more nuanced exploration of Treya’s character...The effect is a little unsatisfying, as if we have only skimmed the surface of what lies beneath the hard armour...But Bhatt is a captivating performer whose acrobatic facial expressions and humour make it hard not to warm to Treya...This is a clever, moving piece and Bhatt gives a dynamic performance."

A Younger Theatre
February 17th, 2016
For a previous production

"'Treya’s Last Dance' is a delicious treat for the lunch hour: whip-crack sharp, funny and touching. It’s a one-woman show that feels more like a million-strong Dickensian cast...In under an hour, Bhatt’s performance builds the kind of character complexity you hope for in a feature film...Each of them is convincing and deeply charming. Bhatt is not only bang-on accurate but delivers her impressions with a kind of tender affection...Bhatt’s script is sharp and well-observed."
