A Killing Affair

by Kavita

Just back from attending a nerve recking comedy play at Sriram Center for Performing Arts. Titled BIG B , the information regarding the same can be found here

Pierrot’s Troupe presents :

a play based on Munshi Premchand’s celebrated short story in Hindi, ‘Bade Bhai Saheb’. It’s about two ‘English-educated-Hindi-speaking’ brothers — the ‘studious’ Kamta Prasad and the ‘sporty’ Samta Prasad. No wonder, the play revolves around History & Hockey, Geography & Gilli Danda and Chemistry & Cricket. And also Rekha Ganit…. Kamta’s favorite … as ‘Rekha’ is his heartthrob and the daughter of ‘Ganit’ teacher. So also Algebra, defined by Samta as “a subject on which even ‘Allah’ has no ‘Jabr’.

Story by Munshi Premchand | Script & Direction by Dr. M. Sayeed Alam & Niti Sayeed

Loved every minute of it…!! Had attended another hindi play last weekend at the same place but wasnt upto delhi’s theatre standards..but this one was one helluva thing which left everybody tickled for hours!!

I love it specially when they do it without MICs and get away with their rocking vocal chords, maintaining the comic timing every second!! Wish i had done a theatre workshop for the sheer fun of it…

Yeah..that reminds me..had performed in a short film in my new office and ran away with two free movie tickets :p ..

Went to COSTA COFFEE from there .. good servings,specially the coffee glasses….long chat with a friend who is fresh outta IIM-L … the standard talks of why and what behind everything we did … with no definite answers ofcourse!! :))

Then a long drive with music..yay!

Saved the weekend from being a complete screw up! :p
