The Script, November 2009 - Issue 11

Diwali may be over, but the festival season has just started across the theatre scene. The Prithvi Theatre Festival kicks off on the 7th of November with plays from various groups across India. The international Women Playwrights Conference and Festival is also happening at Mumbai University's Kalina Campus. Also in Bangalore, the Ranga Shankara Theatre Festival begins from the 5th of November. And of course, Thespo 11 is a mere 4 weeks away and it promises to be one of our best ever.

November sees the return of some popular plays like Rage's 'Class of '84' and 'Love Letters'. While the brand new Skeleton Woman makes its NCPA debut at the end of the month.

On the QTP front, things are getting crazier. We are traveling to 2 different cities with 2 of our plays. Some Girl(s) will be traveling to Kolkata on the 29th of November and Project S.T.R.I.P. has been invited to be a part of the Ranga Shankara Festival on the 13th of November. Also, yours truly and Amruta Sant have returned from globe - trotting (India actually) and are in the process of seleting the plays that are to be a part of Thespo 11.
