The Script, Edition 7 - July 2012

Be it a downpour or the search for the elusive God particle, nothing distracts the Bombay Theatre community. Premiering shows this month include Saurabh Nayyar's 'Ram Sajeevan Ki Prem Katha' and Ratna Pathak Shah's 'A Walk in the Woods'. Add to that the return of popular plays like 'Hamlet - The Clown Prince', 'Adhe Adhure', 'Anything But Love', 'Stories In A Song'... and you have a busy month coming up.

Also, on 13th July there is a special show of Hidaayat Sami's 'The Magic Pill' at the Prithvi Theatre to commemorate Pt. Satyadev Dubey's birthday.


It may be a rainy season, but for us at QTP, its Thespo season!!! We kick off the build up to Thespo 14 with the Orientation Meeting at the end of July. Watch out for details!!!! Rehearsals of our newest play, Kora is underway. Also, Please note:- Only this month Great Texts Reading will be held on TUESDAY 31st July - 7:30pm.
