“Saying Yes” is an English play that is adapted from the works of Griselda Gambaro, the Argentinian playwright. Kaivalya Plays recently presented this piece at a rather informal setting at Instituto Cervantes off Connaught Place. It was a late rainy Sunday evening and the surging audience in the basement theatre was heartening assurance of growing interest in theatre in Delhi NCR.
Mohe Piya, directed by Prof. Waman Kendre and performed by the group Rangpeeth from Mumbai, was based on Mahabharat during Bharat Rang Mahotsav by National School of Drama.

National School of Drama Repertory Company staged their play Aadha Chand during Bharat Rang Mahotsav 2017. The plot deals with people who work in call centre/BPO sector and is a walk through their boulevard of broken dreams. The play had potential but long duration and a major Bollywood hangover got in the way.

“Barff” was debuted during the recently concluded Bharat Rang Mahostav. On popular demand it had an additional show. Directed by Saurabh Shukla this Hindi play had a starry cast – Vinay Pathak, Sadia Siddique and Sunil Palwal. Its is a one hour forty minutes production, and we happened to watch this on a rainy Sunday in Delhi.
Antigone, the Greek tragedy was presented at Kamani Auditorium at Bharat Rang Mahotsav. This is a socio-political play that is relevant given the mindless violence that we see around us. Socio-political theatre is not very common on Delhi NCR stages. Hence, braving the Tuesday evening peak hour traffic, we made it a point to watch this play.
