1 Madhav Bagh, a Ranga Shankara “Other Voices” presentation, featuring
Revathy, returns this week-end. The play is written by Chetan Datar,
translated by Shanta Gokhale, and directed by Mariam Jetpurwala. The
shows are at 9:45 pm on Sat, Nov 19 and 9:30 PM on Sun, Nov 20. The
duration of the play is 40 mins.
Tickets are available at Ranga Shankara and indianstage.in. Given the
intimate space of an “Other Voices” performance, the number of seats
is very limited.
“Other Voices” is a unique theatre experience at Ranga Shankara. It is
theatre performed in an intimate space, after the show in the main
auditorium, in an informal setting (for 1 Madhav Bagh, the audiences
sit on mattresses laid out on the floor), with the performer at
whispering distance.
