Over 20 years, we have staged plays in Hindi, English, and Tamil. In November, we celebrate India’s heritage by staging a bouquet of short plays, each witty and humorous, each in a different Indian language. The scripts are by playwrights all over the world, including masters such as Satyajit Ray, Anton Chekhov and Dorothy Parker. Each show will consist of nine short plays staged in quick succession, and will have super-titles in English.
