Exploring various shades of human emotions

The annual Panna Bharat Ram Theatre Festival, organised by Shri Ram Centre for Performing Arts (SRCPA), will kick start from December 21, in the National capital. The nine-day festival will hold series of vibrant plays for the theatre lovers at SRCPA. Presenting the true spirit of excellence and exploration, the event brings well acclaimed, award winning productions along with some of the great opening shows for the audience.

Throughout the festival, a fine assortment of plays of different genres will be staged, including Hindi adaptation of William Inge's 'Splendor in The Grass', directed by Feisal Alkazi. It's a love story with combination of romance, comedy and drama. Girish Karnad's 'Agni Aur Barkha', revolves around power and relives the age-old myth as its multi-faceted characters, which transcend time and plays out its inexorable end. Another play, 'Bali' by KS Rajendran presents a story of king who is devastated to discover that his queen is involved with an elephant-keeper.

While Mahesh Dattani's 'Tara' deals with the idea of female infanticide that is prevalent especially among the gujaratis, Santvana Nigam's 'Sehaj Ka Sargam' details out the intricacies of human relationships. Exploring the human psyche of guilt, Kaushik Bose's 'Compunction' is a pleasure for the lovers of psychological thriller.

Presenting a black comedy, 'Arsenic & Old Lace' by Joseph Kesselring will leave you quite shocked.

A brutally honest satire on the politics and society, Shrilal Shukla's 'Dastan-e-Raag Darbari' exposes the nexus between the corrupt official and decayed education.

The festival aims to showcase shades of human emotions and brilliant acting skills by well-known actors through its plays.
