Time Machine is a story of 3 young teenage school kids Rahul, Vicky and Anjali. They are the best of buddies. Naughty and careless by nature these kids always tried to bunk and run away from their studies and classes, sometimes even from their parents. One fine day they go out for a picnic in a sea beach where they found a unique gadget. Unaware of the very fact that this is a time machine they travel several eras from one to another. From Mahabharata to British period to many more with full adventure.

Ghalib *ing Tom Alter (Urdu/120mins) The play is a vivacious account of the life and times of Mira Asadullah Khan Ghalib. The play is punctuated with lots of music, poetry, literary anecdotes and historical episodes.

Ghalib Ke Khat *ing Tom Alter (Urdu/90mins)The play is woven around Mirza Ghalib’s relationship with his equally learned yet underrated wife Umrao Begum as reflected from the letters that he wrote to his friends and disciples. The play also highlights the wit and spirit of Ghalib’s maid Wafadar. In the process, the audience is introduced to not only Ghalib – his letters, life and lifestyle, but also to his near and dear ones, including Munshi Har Gopal ‘Taftah’, a great yet long forgotten poet of Persia.

Ghalib In New Delhi (Hindi Comedy/120mins) This play has been running since 1997, with more than 410 shows. It deals with the re-birth of the renowned 19th century poet Mirza Ghalib’s in 21st century New Delhi, highlighting his trials, travails and tribulations – from his second birth at the ISBT in Delhi; to staying in a servant quarter with a Delhi University student from Patna; to dealing with a Punjaban landlady; to becoming a Page-3 celebrity.

Tickets at Rs.1000, Rs.750 & Rs.500 available at the venue (each show). Suitable for 12 years & above.
