Past Forward

Friday, June 24, 2011

This weekend NCPA is buzzing with activity. Rhea Dhanbhoora tells you more about the back-to-back plays with double bill Past Forward
 
If you’re looking for an entertaining bunch of plays this weekend, head down to the NCPA. After their successful production of Ed Monk’s Cut at the Kala Ghoda Arts Festival this year, Last Minute Productions presents an evening of full theatrical entertainment with Past Forward, a double bill of two plays back-to-back on one evening.
 
Director Spandan Mishra tells us, “The first play, Douglas Hill’s Roulette, is a supernatural romantic comedy about a young couple on the verge of divorce who find themselves stuck in a never-ending road trip from Bombay to Goa. The play is a contemporary ‘in the bedroom’ peek into the lives of a married couple who seem so wrong together, it’s almost right that they constantly fight.” The cast, interestingly enough, consists of just two actors, Mishra and his wife Sohini.
 
 “It’s quite challenging to play a couple about to divorce, when we’ve gotten married about 4 months ago,” says Mishra but his wife admits that’s exactly why the play works, “I’m hoping our chemistry off-stage culminates on-stage as well.”
 
 The second play is an original experimental. Titled Scarborough Fair, it is an original experimental written and directed by Yudhishthir Agrawal. Set to the music of Simon and Garfunkel, it’s a coming of age story of a young man who has to choose between writing and love. Yudhisthir actually wrote the play while he was at Cornell University doing MBA, “I’ll never forget walking into theatre class at Cornell wearing a business suit, and I guess that’s the dilemma in my play as well,” he tells us.
