Dear Drama lover,
We finally got Q out of the freezer and into the rehearsal room. 'Project S.T.R.I.P.' opened last month to rave reviews and great houses at Prithvi Theatre and Sathaye College Auditorium. But our limited engagement of the play is on its final leg. Our last five shows will play out at the NCPA Experimental from 1-5 July 2009. So if you want to catch it, this is your last chance. If you already have, send people! We do hope to see you at the shows.
In other theatre news around the city, Akvarious makes their new offering for the quarter (quite a habit it's becoming). A children's play based on Enid Blyton's 'The Mystery of the Pantomime Cat' on the 18th of June at Prithvi. The show marks the directorial debut of one of the theatre's biggest supporters, Meera Khurana. Another debutante director is Anuvab Pal, who has also written '1-888-Dial-India' which will open on the 5th of July at St. Andrews Auditorium. The second half of the month is dominated by Motley who are back with 'Ismat Aapa Ke Naam Part 1 and 2', 'Waiting for Godot' and 'Katha Collage 1' as well opening a new play, 'The Caine Mutiny Court Martial'. Their festival runs from the 13th to 26th of July.
In this month's edition, Avinash D'Souza reviews 'Project S.T.R.I.P.' and theatre director and producer Akarsh Khurana shares his views on the Bombay theatre scene.
Also, our Great Text Reading will be happening on the last Monday of the month, 27th July.
On Behalf of Q Theatre Productions,
Editor, The Script.
