Plays and Theatre represent a very important part of the culture we live in today. And Mumbai, being a city of drama, power, dreams and aspirations, never ceases to amaze through its astonishing movies and drama. There are so many stories to discuss, to be told and to be written, that they will blow audiences away. It also facilitates as well as presents innovative work by Indian and international artists from a diverse range of genres including orchestral concerts, opera, drama, contemporary dance and jazz music. For you to enjoy your last weekend of March in a better way, we bring to you 3 Comedy Plays in Mumbai to attend and experience in Mumbai-
Yatri's Ravanleela- 25th March: In an ordinary Ramleela in the countryside, the situation becomes chaotic and humorous because of the involvement of a few untrained members of society enacting characters from the Ramayana. In the process, the situation turns hilarious when the lively Kartar Singh turns Ramleela into Ravanleela and refuses to die if his demand of hike in fees is not accomplished. The organizer apologizes for this premature ending and is pelted with tomatoes. Music starts playing in the background and he dances to its tune. Ramleela, in the end, turns out to be a true Ravanleela. Check this amazing storyline and have the time of your life.
Bayan- 26th March : In Turkish, 'bayan' means women. In the Indian subcontinent it means 'a statement'. And in this much anticipated play, the ladies take the stage, and express themselves and pour their hearts out. Expect an evening full of fun, sarcasm and point blank statements. There are five pieces of humorous contemporary writings performed by only ladies in this unique event in mumbai. The pieces include 'I Can Tell Your Handbag is Fake' about superficial behavior and fashion consciousness, 'Santas Little Call Girls', about four women trapped in the mundane life of a call center and 'Anything For You', in which two women find a new dimension to their friendship. The play features Prerna Chawla, Dilshad Edibam, Tahira Nath, Shriya Pilgaonkar, Rohini Ramnathan and Shikha Talsania.
Yatri's Chinta Chhod Chintamani- 26th March : It is the story of a family where the father thinks his progenies are standing at the threshold of total ruination. They are wallowing in self-indulgence and their destiny is leading them to their inevitable fall. On the other hand, the children think this is nothing but a generation gap and the old man is unable to understand the situation. Is it really a generation gap or a case of miscommunication, and if it is really a case of a generation gap then who will bridge the gap? Get all the answers in one of the best events at Prithvi Theatre as this is going to be crazy.
