Are you in Mumbai this Wednesday 21st March

If yes, then you can come to Prithvi theatre at 11a.m. to 'Meet the Playwright': GIRISH KARNAD who will be in conversation with Shanta Gokhale

The distinguished playwright Girish Karnad's new play, 'Flowers', is based on a folktale from Chitradurga. It revolves around a priest whose life has become a balancing act between his passionate love for God and his equally passionate love for his courtesan; he is caught off-guard when, one day, they collide.

This dramatic monologue is produced by Ranga Shankara, and will be shown at Prithvi Theatre from 20 through 25 March. Rajit Kapur, who won the National Award for his performance, plays the central character. The play is directed by Roysten Abel, who won the Best Play award at Edinburgh for his interpretation of 'Othello'.

No comments:

The name "Bombay" was derived from 'Bom Bahia' (The Good Bay),

.... a name given by Portuguese sailor Francis Almeida, in 1508 ....“Bounce back Mumbai” it is called by the locals, it is a city that has been through a lot in the recent past – floods, bomb blasts, riots – and come out stronger each time.

Whats the Time Please?
