Aadyam’s presentation this time is Anand Express. The play is based on Keith Gray’s story Ostrich Boys that was later adapted by Karl Miller for stage.

Aadyam has been bringing about a movement in Delhi NCR. Many of us have started coming back to theatre to watch their immaculate play productions. Bandish 20 – 20000Hz was recently staged at Kamani Auditorium under the Aadyam banner. It has upcoming shows in Mumbai this month and it’s a must watch.
