President Priyanka Rajakumaran said the show, titled "Black Lion" and interspersed with six dance performances, aimed to showcase Sri Lankan culture and engage the  university community with the association.

"This year the show  ...  followed two main characters, Jehani and Sharanyaa, on their journey to find the ‘Black Lion’ a.k.a. Merrill Fernando, the founder of Dilmah Tea."

It was conducted with help from the Natyaloka School of Indian dance and the Indian Students’ Association, Ms Rajakumaran said.
