Utterly Gutterly Atrocious

Utterly Gutterly Atrocious

Drama | English, Hindi | Age 7+


An utterly zany and fantastical performance for children of all ages!!

Staged with participants from Worli Koliwada by Aarambh Mumbai, enabled and produced by G5A in partnership with IDFC FIRST Bank under their Project Swachh Worli Koliwada.

A musical fantastical journey through Gutterland and its peculiar characters, Utterly Gutterly Atrocious is a delightful, witty spin on the classic tale of the hare and the tortoise for children and young adults. The play is set in a mystical world inhabited by many unusual folks - including a crazy colonel, a French spy, a mad king, a shrewd minister, many hares and tortoises, a young boy, Suvarna - and his mad, mad adventures through Gutterland.  

Through its dynamic and unexpected subplots and its many twists and turns, the play satirises and challenges our attitudes towards waste, class, and caste in a crazy, funny, bright, engaging and zany way. No preaching here!  


Produced by G5A and IDFC FIRST Bank for Project Swachh Worli Koliwada, this unusual and pioneering effort is a debut creative collaboration between G5A and Aarambh Mumbai, featuring talented young participants from Worli Koliwada as well as professional actors and technicians.


In December 2018, G5A invited the theatre company Aarambh Mumbai to conduct introductory theatre workshops with children and teenagers from Worli Koliwada. This was under the aegis of ‘Arts and Transformation Series’ conceived, designed and produced by G5A in collaboration with IDFC FIRST Bank for Project Swachh Worli Koliwada. Aim of the workshop was to enable access to the arts and create a safe space for introspection and discovery. Interested participants were then invited to contribute to a fresh production of “Utterly Gutterly Atrocious” (written and directed by Purva Naresh of Aarambh Mumbai), all the while exploring the basics of theatre, storytelling, staging and creative expression. From sourcing waste material to making their own props and costumes to acting, singing and dancing in this musical, the devising process helped build confidence amongst the participants while giving them access and the experience to a professionally mounted theatrical production.


 G5A believes in the power of arts-ecosystems supporting and facilitating sustainable social change. To this end, Utterly Gutterly Atrocious is presented as part of G5A’s Arts & Transformation Series (‘AnT’) that aims to initiate a dialogue and facilitate value-based, long-term, artistic and creative cultural consciousness in G South Ward and across the city.
