KATHA EK KANS KI, a Hindi Play
Writer      : D.P Sinha
Direction : Rohit Tripathi
Group      : Upstage Art Group, New Delhi

The 'King of Mathura' is a reinterpretation of a well known Indian mythological tale in contemporary theatrical idiom. King 'Kans' of Mathura has been portrayed as a dictator who is no different from Hitler,  Stalin,  Mao Tse-tung,  and all the dictators who appear on the world stage from time to time. But what compels him? What makes a native, gentle, timid human to execute and persecute the masses? Journey of a man with the love for music, nature, and peace to an insomniac in pursuit of his identity as “Man" - who could take over the dynasty, that he is compelled to believe. With an effort to clinically analyze the psyche of the ruthlessness, it is a clinical analysis of the phenomenon of dictatorship, shaped into a play to enlighten and entertain the contemporary theatre audiences.

CHARANDAS CHOR, a play in Hindi
Writer      : Habib Tanvir
Direction : Vashishth Upadhyay
Group      : Rangayan, ARSD College, Delhi University

The story is derived from a classic Rajasthani folk tale by legend Habib Tanvir in Chhatisgarhi. The play charts the tumultuous life of a petty thief, Charandas (Lalu Ram). Curiously he is a man of principles – an honest thief with a strong sense of integrity and professional efficiency. He makes four vows to his Guru that he would never eat in a gold plate, never lead a procession that is in his honour, never become a king and never marry a princess, thinking all of them are far out possibilities for him. Later, his guru adds a fifth one - never to tell a lie and sets him of on his life's journey which leads him to a kingdom, where the turn of events make him famous, and eventually he is offered the seat of political power which he has to refuse. Later, the local princess gets enchanted by him, and proposes to marry him. This is when his refusal costs him his life. As he is put to death, he illustrates the inherent paradox in human existence, where truthful existence becomes an impossibility, for the truthful and the accidentally truthfuls, alike.

Direction : Rajesh Babbar
Group      : Pratibimb Kala Darpan, New Delhi

The Play ‘LIFE… a bitter truth’ is a Hindi adaptation of Pali Bhupinder Singh’s Punjabi Play ‘Ghar Ghar’. It is an eye opener to the bitter truths of life however well-coated with sugar. The story revolves around three women, one Aman who is a young middle aged house wife living happily with her husband Ajit & daughter Mehak, another, Kamini a most stylist lady and also an old college friend of Ajit who comes from Chandigarh for a short stay at their house, And third, Bindu, a young maid of their house who is post graduate in English.

Kamini’s presence in the house was creating insecurity to the ideal wife Aman. And what happens when Bindu, disclosed one sensational & bitter truth to Kamini?. The play so slowly, casually and so naturally slips into the very core of a woman's existence; Aman who keeps her family functioning to their utmost comfort, is so suddenly shattered... her life is twisted, her heart is torn…. The young maid Bindu also learns the truth of her life’s worth and its reality check. There are no ways to match the excellent manner in which the play unfolds itself.... scene by scene ...could be anyone's life...A must for every woman to learn and exercise what she stands for.
