Plays in Mumbai during this Diwali week end

If I need to escape from noise pollution of fire crackers and traffic in Mumbai, the best place to relax my feet would be at the theatres that organize plays in Mumbai. There are some interesting plays that have caught my attention during this weekend. like:

´Biwi-O-Biwi´, a two hour play (by Indian People's Theatre Association (IPTA)) that deals with the theme of modern male chauvinism and how the modern woman stands up to and fights against it. This play promises to be Super-hit, star-studded comedy play in Hindi. It sounds interesting with the cast such as Rakesh Bedi, Rashmi Sharma, Avtar Gill, Sulabha Arya & others.

This drama is on Oct 26, 2008 at 6:00 PM at Prithvi Theatre20 Janki Kutir, Juhu Church Road, Juhu

Another play that I would like to watch is Tajmahal Ka Tender. This paly explores the possibility of Shahjahan coming alive and giving orders to construct the Taj Mahal in today's day and age. The bureaucratic machinery along with its infamous RED TAPE comes into action and takes the emperor for a long roller-coaster ride. Whether the Tajmahal is finally made or not, is a thing to be seen. The play is full of wit, humour and sarcasm.
This has a star cast of Rakesh Bedi, Rajan Kapur, Avtar Gill, Pramod Dubey & others. And is directed by Salim Alif

There are two shows on Oct 25, 2008, at 06:00 PM, and at 09:00 PM at Prithvi Theatre 20 Janki Kutir, Juhu Church Road, Juhu

There is one more play in the South of Mumbai at NCPA - Experimental TheatreNariman Point, NCPA Marg & Dorabji Tata Road

On Oct 26, 2008 at 06:30 PM, there is a play called ´ All About Women ´ (an Akvarious Productions ) this is Written by Miro Gavran. And directed by Hidaayat Sami with the cast as Ratnabali Bhattacharjee, Prerna Chawla, Nimrat Kaur, Tejaswini Kolhapure, Vandana Prabhu, Mallaika Shenoy, Shivani Tanksale and others.

The journey into the female psyche can be a pretty arduous, if not confusing one. This play attempts that very journey with five life stories alternatively interweaving. The stories range from poignant to hilarious; while the characters range from insightful to absurd, but always remain real. The protagonists are all women: sisters, friends, colleagues at work, old women and little children and the play presents their diverse experiences regarding love, friendship, and careers, hoping to reveal all about women.

Watching a play during this festive week-end should be fun, I am sure……
