The Script, October 2010 - Issue 10

While Delhi frantically prepares for the Common Wealth Games at the last minute, many Bombay theatre directors are also frantically putting the finishing touches on their plays. This month, Sunil Shanbag opens his third play in the last 12 months - 'Walking to the Sun', written by Thespo winning director Vivek V. Narayan. Also opening this month is Manav Kaul's 'Mamtaz Bhai Pataang Wale' and (ibid) Productions' sequel to the successful 'Classic Milds'.

On the QTP front, we're preparing for the all India screening for
Thespo 12. Last month, all 3 plays from our repertory played at the Prithvi theatre to a wonderful reception. While Some Girl(s) will be taking a break to return soon, Project S.T.R.I.P. which completed 25 shows (YAY!!) will be heading to Calcutta and Khatijabai of Karmali Terrace (my personal favourite) has done us proud by being selected for the prestigious NSD Festival in January 2011.

Also we have started a new quiz section! Every month a new theatre question will be posted - it can be viewed on the right hand side under 'Up Coming QTP shows'. Don't cheat!!!

Last month's question was: What is the preferred term used in theatre for a 'bulb'?
The correct answer is: Lamp
A whopping 76% got it right!!
