A king who has never left his castle and his caretaker (simply called Mrs. Care) emerge from the other end of the Earth when the towers of the castle collapse! How they find their way back is told in a spell-binding play of light and shadows, by the German troupe Theater Handgemenge on 8th and 9th. Like for all our children's shows, we have arranged special shows for schools in the morning too.
Odakalu Bimba (2nd and 3rd) and Bikhre Bimb (30th Jun and 1st Jul) clock in their 25th shows. Rajit Kapur returns to perform four shows of Flowers. This play saw extremely successful shows in Mumbai recently, with audiences and critics showering praises on all aspects of the production.
Like always, old favorites on the Ranga Shankara stage come back for re-runs. Kalakunja and Tanman perform for the first time here, and bring their best productions. Shraddha by the young Vinayak Joshi is a play that's growing in popularity.
Matinees continue on Sundays. In a quick survey, we found out that our audiences feel the 3:30 show ensures they do theatre and everything else they want to on a Sunday; some others see this as an effective way of beating the evening rain!
It's a year since Anju Sudarshan began running the café at Ranga Shankara! She is working overtime on bringing new dishes onto the menu while keeping the old favorites.
See you at RS!
