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.
In the month of February, we read Tanika Gupta's adaptation of Harold Brighouse's 'Hobson's Choice' - 'the story revolves around Hari Hobson, his three daughters and his struggle to run his dress making business whilst still maintaining control over his increasingly strong willed girls'.
In the month of March, we will be reading Donald Margulies's 'Time Stands Still' - 'James and Sarah, a journalist and a photographer, have been together for nine years and share a passion for documenting the realities of war. But when injuries force them to return home to New York, the adventurous couple confronts the prospect of a more conventional life.'
The play opened in 2010 and was nominated for 2 Tony Awards including Best Play.
Donald Margulies (born 1954) is an American playwright and professor of English literature at Yale University. He received the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 2000 for his play, Dinner With Friends.
We will be reading it on the 28th of March 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.
