The Script, July 2010 - Issue 7

30th June marked not only the end of the month, but also the end of the Himanshu Era at Q Theatre Productions / Thespo. Himanshu has moved to the colder pastures of Canada and will be missed by all of us. We hope that in the days to come he can be with us 'virtually' and may be continue to publish this newsletter. We hope.

This month has a lot of "Brand New"/ "Announcing"/ "For the first time in Bombay" theatre events lined up. Ram Ganesh Kamatham's 3 productions premier in Bombay as well as Makarand Deshpande's closely guarded 'Poha Gone Wrong' and AKvarious Productions' much awaited 'A Guy Thing'. We are also "announcing" THESPO 12 this month and Confessions returns (once again) to Thespo at Prithvi.

In this month's issue, Dolly Thakore tell's us about the NSD auditions in Bombay, Jamal Iqbal shares theatre stories from Dubai, Sneha Nair reviews Ranga Shankara's Robinson and Crusoe.
