The Script, May 2009. Issue 5.

Dear Drama lover,

Hello again! Summer time means children's time and this month some of our favourite children's play 'Almost Twelfth Night', 'A Special Bond Part 2' and 'Once Upon a... Tiger!' will be showcased at the Prithvi Theatre, Karnataka Sangha and Horniman Circle Garden. Also some new plays like IPTA Balmanch's 'Barsoraam Dhadaake Se' and Working Title's 'Day I Met the Prince' will be opening in May.

On the QTP front, Q is donning the director's cap after 5 long years and will be opening a new play in June - Please check the Great Stuff Section for more details. Our Great Text Reading will be happening on the last Monday of the month, 25th May. Hope to see you there.

In other news, Sathaye College Auditorium, which opened earlier this year, will now see regular theatre activities. A group of theatre-wallahs - under the banner 'rangasthal' - approached the college principal to make this intimate proscenium space a regular venue for experimental plays. For the next 6 months rangasthal will curate shows on a trial basis. Those interested in staging their plays at this venue, please email rangasthal@gmail.com. Also Fame Cinemas announces an exclusive tie-up with Mumbai Theatre Guide to have regular play performances throughout Fame multiplexes in India.

In this month's edition, Quasar Thakore Padamsee gives an account of watching 'The Man From Mukinupin' in Sydney and Avinash D'Souza reviews 'Don't Look Now'. Also theatre director and producer Akarsh Khurana shares his views on the Bombay theatre scene.

Yours Sincerely,
On Behalf of Q Theatre Productions,

Himanshu.
