Playing for summer

Playing for summer
X
An artiste knows no seasonal bounds! There is no heat, no chill that can overwhelm an artistic heart. As people of the capital look for summer retreats and ways to beat the heat, we remind you about the large group of artistes who are to present a mega theatrical extravaganza The Summer Theatre Festival next week for Delhiites reeling under the hot weather.

From the story of a family broken by the devastating Indian partition to an adaptation of Shakespearse’s classic Merchant of Venice to an adult comedy satiring Indian men, three widely different and interesting plays will be staged over three days.

The three grand productions are full of emotions and liveliness, are supported effectively by Indian music and have a rich content that will both entertain you and touch you deep inside. The USP of this festival is the variety it is offering. While Couple Trouble is an adult comedy which subtly underlines the double standards of married men, Saudagar has been adapted from Shakespeare’s Merchant of Venice in an Indian set-up. The last play of the festival, Wo Lahore, will introduce to you to a small blissful family living in Lahore which is eventually destroyed as a consequence of India’s partition.

When: 20 - 22 June Where: Shri Ram
Centre Timing: 7 pm
