Event Description : THEATRE "Playtime" an evening of English Plays based on stories by Gopal Sharman    
Gopal Sharman Birthday Weekend Celebration   

4 plays. 4 Directors. 4 stories  

Two and Two, directed by Jalabala Vaidya and Vidur Mohan.
Two and Two plays with numbers. It is a highly allegorical play that that examines the philosophy of love, and the torment that accompanies it, from the perspective of numbers. The prism of numbers is wit, particularly sparkling around the number four. The characters and poetry have a dialogue. They etch out the real meaning Gopal Sharman gives to 4, and its significance in life for each one of us. 

Full Circle, directed by Sunit Tandon
Told from both third person and first person perspectives, the play at face value narrates the tale of a seemingly eccentric man who keeps writing and posting letters to himself and then journeys to different parts of the world to receive them. The destinations criss-cross the globe. Keeping track of all the departures and arrivals to coincide with receiving the letters is no mean feat. The content of the letters is no less amazing. As the story unfolds, it becomes clear that whatever he writes in these letters, whether good or bad, happens to come true, miraculously and beautifully. When the letter tells him to reach a snowbound tea-shop in a Himalayan village “with a sunny beach at its furthest end”, he follows the instructions and a miracle does indeed unfold. The story is interspersed with snapshots of his journeys following his letters and the seemingly magical occurrences that take place, true to what has been written. The story comes to a close where it began, with the man tirelessly writing his letters “…to watch miracles happen, at beauty’s touch.”

The Language of Illiteracy directed by Vikalp Mudgal,
What happens when a man plants himself into the soil and becomes a tree, touching the dark, throbbing heart of nature? First of all, words lose their meaning and he develops a whole new vocabulary of earth, wind, rain and heat. Where is love in this scheme of things? Is there any assurance of the warmth of love, or is each day a new surprise?

This And That And Zero directed by Nisa and Dhruv Shetty
This And That is a play for children, which combines the magic and mystery of poetry and mathematics. Using the Jain concept of Anekanta, Gopal contemplates the coexistence of dual viewpoints. This And That epitomizes a search for Truth, in which one can be both This or That, Zero or 1 to 10, depending on how you look at it. Enacted by children through dialogue, poetry and Sanskrit chanting, the play brings to the fore the existence and significance of duality.
Zero is a stunning presentation of the symbols and sounds that can bind or liberate us.  Using the imagery of the Sun Temple at Konark, of Khajuraho, of the millions and trillions of galaxies in space, Zero takes us on a breathtaking journey from deep within ourselves out to the furthest reaches of space, through the eye of the poet’s imagination. Performed by Jalabala Vaidya, Zero leaves an indelible imprint on the mind.
