A Special Bond opened in 2007 and went on to do more than 50 shows. Its sequel opened in 2008 and went on to do over 35 shows. After a hiatus of six years, we return with probably the final installment of our Ruskin Bond trilogy.
The first two parts were about the adventures of the quintessential Bond protagonist Ranji, in the hills, on his vacations. The people he met, the friends he made, the pets his grandfather had, the trouble he got into, and his coming of age.
Part Three juxtaposes the life of Ruskin Bond with his work. We see a young lad of British origins become a celebrated writer in India, and how his own adventures inspired his memorable stories. In our play, we experience the life behind the stories, and those very stories coming to life, with lots of song and dance, as a true celebration of the man and his legacy.
