Great Text Reading - come read a play with us.

On the last Monday of every 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.
Last month we read Swiss playwright, Friedrich Durrenmatt's 'The Visit'.

The play, originally titled 'Der Besuch der alten Dame' tells the story of an elderly millionairess who, merely on the promise of her millions, swiftly turns a depressed area into a boom town. But the condition attached to her largesse, which the locals learn of only after they are enmeshed, is murder.

Fortunately, the rain Gods were kind and we had a wonderful turnout. I say fortunately, because the play has over 30 characters. The unanimous response was that it was a 'fun' play and some regulars even went as far as saying that they enjoyed it more than Jerusalem!

In the month of July, we will be reading The Laramie Project is a play by Moisés Kaufman and members of the Tectonic Theater Project.


The play revolves around the reaction to the 1998 murder of University of Wyoming gay student Matthew Shepard in Laramie, Wyoming. The murder is widely considered to be a hate crime motivated by homophobia. It draws on hundreds of interviews conducted by the theatre company with inhabitants of the town, company members' own journal entries and published news reports. It is divided into three acts, and eight actors portray more than sixty characters in a series of short scenes.


We will be reading it on the 26th 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 Quasar on 26392688 or 9821087261.
