"Raavan Ki Ramayan" which features the legendary actor Puneet Issar in the role of Raavan is a re-look at the history from the point of view of those who lost and never got a chance to tell their side of story. A virtuous king of a prosperous kingdom is outraged at the ravaged modesty of his sister and sets out for a dignified revenge. But he falls for the defiance and audacity of an abducted woman and ultimately throws his kingdom into a great war against the will of many of his ministers, wife including his eldest son. The war within him poses him against the questions of his wife, sons, gods and ancestors and war outside ultimately becomes the eternal war of Sur and Asur with high stakes from history on both sides. What unfolds is an epic hitherto unheard. After successful launch in Delhi not the show comes to Gurgaon.

Tickets at Rs.1500 & 1000 available at the venue.
Suitable for all age groups.

Gauhar traces the story of one of India's first mass media superstars at the turn of the last century! An Armenian Christian who later converted to Islam, Gauhar Jaan was a naturally gifted musician with a wide repertoire. One of the earliest women artists who seized the opportunity that came with the advent of recording technology, hers was the first Indian voice to be recorded in 1902, and during her life she cut close to 600 records, with her fame travelling as far as Europe, with her face emblazoned on matchboxes and postcards ! Gauhar lays bare her life with all its attendant myths, legends and folklore, some of which are recorded, some apocryphal; as well as the times during which she lived and made exquisite music. Her independent life style and feisty nature symbolise the indomitable spirit of the resurgent women musicians of her time, and her high ق│ô pitched and flirtatious announcement - 'My name is Gauhar Jaan', at the end of all her recordings, epitomises a milestone in the history of Indian classical music, one that would change forever its content, structure and style of presentation.

Tickets at Rs. 2000, 1500, 1200 & 1000 available at the venue.
Suitable for 10 years & above.
