The Old World Theatre Festival 2016 is reaffirming its vision with a spectacular assemblage of the finest theatre in India today! Plays that entertain and provoke, plays that question and span a gamut of issues from relationships, freedom and gender stereotypes, religion and faith, eroding ecosystems and assaults on sustainable agriculture and rural livelihood all find a place here.

The curtain-up on 8th October will be with Barff featuring the versatile actress Sadia Siddiqui and veteran actor-director Saurabh Shukla. The acclaimed Ramayana brought alive by Jalabala Vaidya and Akshara theatre will follow on the 9th, a moving tribute to theatre doyen Gopal Sharman who passed away earlier this year. The timeless classic Ibsen’s Doll’s House by Ila Arun has Ira Dubey in the lead. We also have Purva Naresh’s hugely entertaining Ladies Sangeet to lighten the mood.  Kaizad Kotwal’s widely debated Agnes of God also gives a whole new dimension to the festival’s scope.

Be sure to grab your tickets for the year’s most celebrated theatrical gala!

Behroopiya Entertainers Presents Run for your wife, the world’s longest running and one of the funniest theatre comedies ever written. This British farce written by Ray Cooney has been specially adapted for the Indian audience.

Trouble ensues when a head injury causes his schedule to go awry. To make matters worse, there are two inspectors at both his homes looking for him while investigating the incident.

Gardish Mein Taare Starring Sonali Kulkarni & Arif Zakaria @ EPICENTRE!

Gardish Mein Taare

Gardish Mein Taare

Directed by: Saif Hyder Hasan

Cast:  Sonali Kulkarni & Arif Zakaria

Language: Hindi

Duration: 80 mins

Helmed by Sonali Kulkarni and Arif Zakaria, Gardish Mein Taare is the second installment of a trilogy based on artistes, unfulfilled love, music and death by Saif Hyder Hasan, the first being Ek Mulaqaat (based on Sahir Ludhianvi and Amrita Pritam’s love story). Based in the 50s, the play deals with the married couple Dev Dutt, a successful filmmaker and Bhavna, a noted singer, who mostly sings only in her husband’s films. After a point of time, their relationship starts deteriorating as Dutt is more inclined towards films and has no time for his wife. The rest of the play deals with its consequences while providing an ode to the films and filmmakers of the bygone era.

Gardish Mein Taare is a tribute to the creatively volatile era of Hindi cinema of the 1950s. It owes its genesis to the mad, passionate people who forsook everything for the one thing they believed in – cinema. Somewhere, it is also inspired by the turbulent times and relationship shared by two creative geniuses – Guru Dutt and his wife Geeta Dutt.

Watch Gardish Mein Taare for the sheer musicality of unfulfilled love. Watch it for the tribute of the 1950s. Watch it for love. Watch it with love.

Date: 2nd July 2016

Time:  5:00 pm and 7:30 pm

Theatre aficionados in Delhi NCR have a reason to rejoice; Epicentre is treating you to three amazing plays on three consecutive days! Start off your happy weekend with Enemy Of The People on 17th, follow it up with director Kuldeep Kunal’s Misprint on 18th and end it with a bang on the 19th with Do Deewane Sheher Mein, inspired by Shakespeare’s ‘Two Gentlemen of Verona’.

While in Enemy Of The People, The Mayor’s brother Dr. Shiv Nath fights for the thing that he believes to be right, Misprint is about two friends belonging to different classes of society and how misprinted their lives are! Through comedy and satire, it tries to remind us where we stand – Aukat and how greed and fear restrict and manipulate our feelings.

Delhi- Ciously Chekhov Starring Legendary Actor Tom Alter!

Directed by: Raj Upadhyay

CastTom Alter, Sumit Gulati, Pranav Sachdeva, Prajvi Bagga, Nirmal Kothari, Ashok Dhawan, Utsav Narula

Language: Eng-bi-lingual

Duration: 90 mins

Delhi-Ciously Chekhov is essentially an adult comedy, and Tom Alter believes that the audience in Delhi is adaptive and becoming increasingly receptive to different genres. “I have been performing here for the past 15 years and every year the response gets better”, he says.

The play is a luscious three-course meal starring legendary actor Tom Alter. All of Chekhov’s short stories are eternal and have a compelling plot and titillating dialogues. These three were by far the most juicy and salacious comedies written by Chekhov and Delhi being the most vivacious and intriguing city in India was obviously our only choice for the set up.

Entree: The Arrangement- A story about a young boy and his father. It delightfully shows the father’s concern to give his 19 year old son a birthday gift, a gift that no father would be dreaming of giving his son. Well! He wants him to become a man; he does so by taking him to a woman…

Main Course: The Surgery-There is comedy even in excruciating pain, and that’s what ”The Surgery” stands for. It is a story about a doctor who is a doctor in every way but one, the formal degree.

Dessert: Seduction- A live and practical demonstration by the most notorious bachelor in town on how to seduce a beautiful young woman with a little help from her husband.

If you haven’t seen it yet, then you’re certainly missing out! Catch it at Epicentre this Friday for the perfect theatrical start to your weekend.
