ABOUT THE PLAYS:
LIGHTS OUT (11th-14th July): Every night, Laila and Bazil hear screams coming from the compound next to their apartment building. Laila wants her husband, Bazil, to report the screams to the police. Bazil, does not believe the screams are as loud as Laila makes them out to be, nor are they worth reporting. They hear the screams night after night, and turn off their lights, to prevent their windows being broken. What's happening outside? Are the screams real? Is a crime being committed? 

HEER (18th-21st July): A retelling of the story of Heer Ranjha from the viewpoint of Heer, incorporating modern poetry as well as dance and music to retell the iconic love-tale from a feminist perspective.

BAHRIABAD (25th-28th July): An adaptation of David Mamet’s masterpiece Glengarry Glenn Ross, Bahriabad will leave you gasping for air. It makes you laugh, even though you know that his characters are fighting for their lives. The story revolves around real estate agents who are trying to survive in a brutal and competitive market. The salesmen work at a real estate company called Dream Ambassadors, selling Bahriabad properties. This is a crucial month: the sales contest is on, and whoever makes the most sales will win a new car. The leads are crucial to achieve this target. But somebody has stolen the leads and everyone is a suspect.

POOJA (1-4 August): A musical love story: Two best friends fall in love with the same girl. They make a pact that neither will pursue her, but changing circumstances bring her back into their lives. Pooja is a story of love, faith and betrayal in relationships.  

Please note: No children under 14.
