Plays form an integral part of our lives partly because they are one of the oldest forms of storytelling and also the most intimate one. Theatres have existed from time immemorial. The ancient greeks used it as a form of catharsis and told stories comprising of Gods. It was probably a metaphor that would underline the helplessness of man when confronted with circumstances that are beyond his control and are of not his making. To this day theatres continue to fulfill the purpose they were incepted for which is tell stories that are of man and his continual struggle for meaning and purpose. The rhetorical is there for a very particular purpose. The plays that catch are imagination will certainly catch yours. So, we do the leg work and present you three plays that you might find interesting and norm defying.
Piya Behrupiya It so happens that two campaigns happen to be happening in parallel in the household of Olivia. The first one is by the lovesick lord Orsino who continues to try even though Olivia happens to b indifferent to his feelings while the other by an alliance of servants and hangers-on who are tired of the high-handed attitude of the pompous Malvolio, who happens to be Olivia’s steward. A chain of unanticipated events are set into motion when Orsino asks the cross-dressed Viola to plead with Olivia.
Ekti Natya Shondha This play is being set up by the Bengali community that resides in Pune. The drama show is the result of collaboration between two Bengali cultural groups. The play was organised last yaear and the response of the bengali community was phenomenal. Owing to that 'Ekti Natya Shondha' is being staged again. The theatre community will be hopefully showering it with love all over again.
