If you’re a Marathi theatre aficionado, NCPA’s forthcoming Marathi theatre festival is not something to miss out on. Dev Goswami tells you more about what you can look forward to

If you want to treat yourself to contemporary Marathi theatre, then keep your next weekend free as the National Centre for Performing Arts (NCPA) is hosting Pratibimb — a Marathi theatre festival that aims to promote Marathi theatre and its understanding. You can catch some amazing plays at the festival and each play will be followed by a discussion with the cast and crew of the play.

The five-day festival will showcase six plays in all. On Friday, you can catch Dream Society, the story of a writer who wants to peep into the dreams of other people, but has been forbidden by the society and the judiciary. Saturday will play host to Mele Undir, a two-hour abstract play that explores and exposes the turbulent and contradictory ulterior motives. Sunday will have you catching Shivacharitra Ani Ek, which taps on the seldom touched topic of the conflict between Brahmins and non-Brahmins. Ek Diwas Mathakade, which showcases the story of a young man in the prime of his life, searching for a guide, too will be staged later that day.

On Monday, the Experimental Theatre will lend its stage to Khoon Karaychay, which is a thrilling story of a murder-mystery novelist and a struggling actor, while Tuesday will witness In Min Teen, which is based on the one-act play The Park and tries to show that there is a beast hidden in every person.

The plays are interesting and the discussions post the staging make the festival much more insightful. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to get exposed to Marathi theatre. Tickets are priced at Rs 200 and Rs 150 and for more information, you can log on to their website www.ncpamumbai.com.
