Hello one and all. We'd like to wish all 'The Script' readers a very Happy New Year!!!

The year is just started and already we have a host of new plays to look forward to in January. The ever prolific Akvarious presents their brand new play 'Rafta Rafta', Poor Box presents 'I am an emotional creature : The secret of girls around the world', Vir Das presents 'Virtten' and Ace Productions present 'The Sound of Music'.

There's no respite on the QTP front either. After the phenomenal success of Thespo 12, we are off to Delhi with our show Khatijabai of Karmali Terrace which is one of the official entries for the 2011 NSD Festival. Also the Great Text reading is back on the 31st of January.

From this month, we have a new contributor to 'The Script'. Theatre actor and director Kashin Shetty will share with us various aspects of his theatre life in his segment titled 'Kashin Baba's Babblings'. Welcome aboard!!

Also we continue our 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!!!
