Dir. Aritra Sengupta and Ayanti Ghosh Prod. M.A.D (Mad About Drama) This is a Play that enfolds and unfolds tales that revolve around a City which is more than three hundred years old. The play is an amalgamation of several tiny plays, which move back and forth, between Kolkata and Calcutta, between people and memories, between old meetings and new partings, between strangers and their stranger tales, and tells us the story of how people makes a city, more than a city making its people. With Love, Calcutta' has been performed in two cities so far, Calcutta- at the renowned Gyan Manch auditorium and Mumbai- at the prestigious Prithvi Theatre. The play has so far run only full-house shows in both the cities.

Colour Blind

(English, Hindi, Bengali, French/75mins)


Dir. Manav Kaul Prod. aRANYA Cast. Kalki Koechlin, Swanand Kirkire, Satyajeet Sharma, Ajitesh Gupta, Amrita Bagchi, Chitrangada Chakroborty, Neha Singh, Avantika Ganguly, Padma Damodaran, Shivam Sharma, Deep Bhimajiyani, Avinash Gautam & Tarun Mahilani. Colour Blind beads in a few misshapen pearls from Tagores long and winding journey of life. His childhood or what he himself quirkily termed the servocracy period, his restless and conflicted youth, his writings and their myriad inspirations, his controversial and achingly beautiful relationship with Victoria O Campo in the autumn of his life. And with these, his thick-skinned yet faithful companion, Death, that not once left his side. Colour Blind isnt an encyclopedic biography but rather a poetic, impulsive and more heart play that intends to discover the ordinariness behind the extraordinariness, the emptiness, vulnerability and pain of a human being that became the legendary Gurudev to the world.

Tickets at Rs. 700, 600 & 500 available at the venue.
Suitable for 16 years & above.

Boiled Beans On Toast

(Eng/105 mins plus 15 minutes of interval)


Dir. Lillete Dubey Cast. Joy Sengupta, Meenal Patel, Deepika Amin, Avantika Akerkar, Maneesh Verma , Swati Das, Avnish Mehra, Gillian Pinto & Divya Unny. Boiled Beans on Toast traces the interwoven lives of half-a-dozen people who have opted to live in the city of Bangalore. They are very different from each other, belonging to widely divergent social strata, and from widely separated geographical corners. Starting from under a single roof, these lives branch out in diverse directions, get entangled in the swirl of life outside where they lose track of themselves, separate or unexpectedly collide and careen off each other. The city is Bangalore, but anyone familiar with life in a modern Indian megalopolis will instantly respond to this portrayal of urban aspirations, conflict, blind groping and violence. A serene old lady unexpectedly discovers a passion for horse racing and is not averse to cheating her own family; a small-town youth, devoted to his family, gets mesmerized by prospects of sudden prosperity; a trustworthy servant of many years is discovered floating homeless in the nightmarish streets; a not-very-bright young maid learns how to fight for survival within the confines of a kitchen: What we have is modern city life in its many shadow-shapes, funny, tender, moving, relentless in its pursuit of success, buffeted by ceaseless emotional flux.

Tickets at Rs. 700, 600 & 500 available at the venue.
Suitable for 16 years & above.
