Dear Drama lover,
September is here and so are the rains it would seem! The Ganpati drums have subsided but it looks like they have given birth to an army of new plays that are debuting over the next few months. For more details on all the new happenings take a peek into our 4 Corners section.
This month also sees the return of some old favourites. Feroz Abbas Khan makes a return with his brilliant 'Salesman Ramlal' and hilarious 'All the Best', while Akvarious, easily the most prolific theatre company in Bombay is back with 'All About Women', and Rage returns with a bouquet of their work.
September promises to be a roller coaster for us at QTP. We open a new play, our second this year. Some Girl(s), directed by Nadir Khan, premieres on the 26th & 27th of September at the NCPA Experimental. We hope to see you there.
In Thespo land things are hotting up with the last date for play registrations for Thespo 11 being the 10th of September.
