Oleanna by Pulitzer Prize Winning Playwright David Mamet
Having premiered in 1992, this two-character play is as relevant today, as it was then. In a pretty short time, a male college professor and his female student descend from a discussion of her grades into a modern reprise of the inquisition. She accuses him of sexual exploitation. By doing so his future is in danger. But is he really guilty? Or is she a schemer? Rebecca and Preetam will have you yelling your opinion out loud as you leave and leave you in some high end self indulging experiences!

Venue: Jagriti Theatre: Whitefield, Bengaluru
Hate Mail is an epistolary play like Love Letters, with two actors reading letters but it's a little wilder and hysterically funny. It tells the story of Preston, a spoiled rich kid who meets his match in Dahlia, an angst- filled artist. Their worlds collide when Preston sends a complaint letter that gets Dahlia fired from her job, and then there’s no turning back. The play stays with their increasingly crazed correspondence as they move from hate to love, and then right back again.
