Corno-Q-Pia


Q Theatre Productions proudly presents its brand new play "Project S.T.R.I.P.", a comic satire written by Ram Ganesh Kamatham and directed by Q. The play tells the story of the discovery of a native island community and their contribution towards the ‘progress and trade’ of the modern world.

We opened to a rapturous audience and ran successfully for a week at the Prithvi Theatre. It was hearting to see people coming back to watch the play for a second and third time. Unfortunately the momentum slowed at Sathaye College Auditorium where despite there being a low turnout, all those who saw the show had a kind word to say.


The cast includes Neil Bhoopalam, Gulshan Devivah, Dilnaz Irani, Harssh A. Singh, Shruti Sridharan and Tariq Vasudeva.

We are now on the final stretch of shows! Last 5 show only!! Catch it NOW!!!!

GREAT TEXTS

On the last Monday of each month people meet in Q's drawing room to read a play they may have heard of but not necessarily have read. Writer's come to see how the greats wrote, actors come to play multiple parts and theatre lovers come because it keeps them in touch with the art form. It is open all and everyone takes turns in playing characters from the play. Discussions ensue after over tea and biscuits.

In June we read Boris Vian's 'The Empire Buliders' . It turned out to be a weird and strange story about a family who keeps climbing floors to escape the Noise. An all male turn out and an eleven page monologue made it an evening to remember. Some incredibly witty dialogue, but the play left most confused.
In the month of July, we will be reading Katherine Thomson's 'Diving for Pearls' - "a story of two ordinary people discarded by the lean, mean 90's world."


Katherine Thomson (born 1955) is an Australian playwright and screenwriter.Katherine Thomsonwas born in Manly, New South Wales and began her theatrical involvement as a teenager with the Australian Theatre for Young People. She helped found Theatre South in Wollongong and acted in many of their productions.Thomson has written for a number of television series. She has also served as a member of the board of the Sydney Theatre Company for a number of years.

Diving for Pearls was First performed in 1991. The play is very much set in the industrial relations climate of the '80s. It provides an interesting new perspective to view it from 1998, when the prevailing tone has shifted from multiskilling and quality circles to guard dogs and balaclavas. Although that's only a few years in chronology, it seems like ages in social terms.

We will be reading it on the 27th of July at 7:30pm at 18 Anukool, Sq. Ldr. Harminder Singh Marg, 7 Bungalows. Next to Daljit Gym. All are welcome. If you need directions call Himanshu on 26392688 or 9820356150.We hope to see you at these and many more events.






In 1999, Theatre Group Bombay (TG) approached Q Theatre Productions (QTP) to showcase younger theatre groups in a vibrant festive atmosphere and thus 'Thespo' was born. Thespo was created to give young performers an opportunity to hone their talents on a simulated professional stage. Through Thespo, TG and QTP hope to recognize and encourage new talent as well as create a new generation of theatre goers.Join us as we explore the stage anew with loads of cutting edge youth theatre, platform performances and workshops conducted by the who’s who in theatre. Originally started as just a one off festival at the end of each year, Prithvi Theatre and Thespo have joined hands to provide a more regular show casing of the best youth theatre talent in the country. Thus in March 2007, Thespo at Prithvi was born. The first Tuesday and Wednesday each month, the next generation of theatre wallahs stride across the hallowed Prithvi stage.
Aside from regular full length theatre, Thespo at Prithvi is also providing an opportunity for young theatre groups to showcase their short plays, as a pre show appetizer before the main show on each Thespo at Prithvi show day. If you have a play that you think can work in the outdoor areas of Prithvi Theatre, email us at
thespo@gmail.com
Thespo at Prithvi...it’s not just on. It’s full-on!!!
Thespo at Prithvi in June :
In the month of June, Thespo at Prithvi presented Quaff Theatre’s Skeleton Woman – Winner of the Metroplus Playwright Award 2009. The play was performed by Kalki Koechlin and Prashant Prakash and was directed by Nayantara Kotian. The play deals with creativity & death… the imagination & the mundane… geese & skeletons… and love & writing – not necessarily in that order.
The response to show was beyond belief which was evident as 3 out of the 4 shows were house-full.
We are on a break in July, but will be back in July. Keep watching this space!
We are on the look-out for new plays that can be a part of Thespo at Prithvi for the coming months. So if your under 25, and you have play ready that's an hour long, get in touch with us at 9820356150 or email us at
thespo@gmail.com
