Have you ever watched video screenings of famous plays?
If you had enjoyed the films such as Nishant, Akrosh and Ardh Satya… then you might also enjoy some of the plays that will be playing at Nehru Centre because Vijay Tendulkar had written screenplays to such masterpieces of World Cinemas
The Nehru Centre will showcase the best of the country’s plays as part of its theatre festival
This is the Centre’s ‘12th edition’ of the festival, and is dedicated to the memory of playwright Vijay Tendulkar, who had won every award given by the government and private institutions to honour art, literature and cinema… including the Sangeet Natak Akademi, few Filmfares, Padma Bhushan and other state and national awards. His play ‘Ghasiram Kotwal’ has run for a record 1000 shows and over 3 decades.
However this year, the Nehru Centre has brought in an element of technology into its schedule of plays. For the first time in the festival’s history, the Nehru Centre will hold video screenings of famous plays. This move was prompted by the desire to share great original plays with the audience. The plays that will be screened are Ghasiram Kotwal, Shantata Court Chalu Aahe and Peter Brooke’s Mahabharat.
The Nehru Centre is presenting 12 different plays as part of its annual theatre festival this year.
