Gasha in Pune at the Vinod Doshi Theater Festival

This year the festival opens with Piya Behrupiya, an adaptation of Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night by Atul Kumar which was first staged at the Globe to Globe Festival of Shakespeare’s plays, in London. This will be followed by Mohan Rakesh’s Adhe Adhure directed by Lilette Dubey. Sunil Shanbag’s delightful adaptation of Shakepeare’s All’s Well that Ends Well as Maro Piyu Gayo Rangoon, which sets the play in the ascendant fortunes of the Gujarati business community in colonial Bombay is next. This play too was commissioned for the Globe to Globe festival.

The last two days will have plays from two of the finest young directors at work today. Gasha is a look at the fractured and delicate friendship between a Kashmiri Pandit and a Kashmiri Muslim examined as a tale of exile and return spanning two decades. Written by Irawati Karnik, a recipient of the Vinod Doshi Fellowship in Performing Arts in previous years, it is directed by Bangalore-based playwright and director Abhishek Majumdar.

But, perhaps, the most anticipated play is the Marathi Uney Purey Shahar Ek, written by Girish Karnad and directed by Mohit Takalkar.
