Six Characters in search of an Author
Before you start reading, let us tell you this play in Mumbai is an event never experienced before. The play, Six Characters in search of an Author, explores the hinge between art and reality when a theatre troupe is rudely interrupted by the very characters of the text that they are rehearsing. Pirandello’s classic work explores the very notion of truth as both the actors and characters confront the emotional arc of what it really means to ‘live’ on the stage, even if only for a moment.

Ananda Hindi Natya Utsav – Traffic
The Ananda Hindi Natya Utsav presents a selection of Hindi plays covering a spectrum of genres and generations. It’s not about the place we live in, but about the people we live with. The blend of the system of our society and the people around force us to keep quiet and walk upon any situation without opening our mouths. Even if someone does take a stand, somebody finds a way to stall them. The play is about how the common public gets stuck in society’s traffic, even if they don’t want to.
