Welcome to the eighth edition of The Hindu MetroPlus Theatre Fest, which showcases some of the finest English theatre in the country as well as some stunning performances from overseas. Over the years, the theatre festival has become quite an integral part of Chennais cultural calendar.
Eight citizens of Mumbai pour their hearts out to the audience. A slice of their lives is served on a platter of pain, joy, memories, hopes, fear, desires, sorrow, ambitions and love. The characters are strung together by a series of monologues, which tap into their lives, both personal and public. The play is set in Maximum City, Mumbai, a monster with a population of more than 20 million bringing to the fore it`s own struggle and survival, disillusionment, distress, corruption and chaos.
The Orchid Room Experiment was started by Zafar Karachiwala and Devika Shahani Punjabi. With two productions already under way, Bombay Talkies and Pereiras Bakery at 76 Chapel Road, this new theatre company is engaged in events, workshops and live performances.
