Following from the series on Dramaturgy, Jagriti now offers you (actor, playwright, audience member, student of literature), a chance to read and discuss a play as a great piece of writing, to read it as it exists on the page rather than experience it on the stage.

Apr 25, 26. Anya Theatre (Kolkata) presents ‘Choitali Rater Swapna (A Midsummer Night’s Dream)’ by William Shakespeare, translated into Bengali by Utpal Dutt
The play shows what can happen when the perceived structure of the outer world breaks down, and how separateness and stability of identity are lost. The play features three interlocking plots, connected by a celebration of the wedding of Duke Thesues and the Hippolyta, and set simultaneously in the forest, and in the realm of fairyland, under the light of the moon.

Apr 30-May 4. ‘Bharat, Blighty & the Bard (Shakespeare for Everyone)’, directed by Miranda Lapworth, UK
Why does this one man, born 450 years ago in an unremarkable little country town, still dominate the literary and theatrical world with his words? Shakespeare’s voice speaks for all of us and to all of us, whether of war or wooing, whether of law or love, whether of marriage or madness.

Vishaka Hari is a powerhouse of talent. The most striking thing about her performance is that she captivates you, has you in a spell. In her concert for Bhoomija on Thu, May 8 (Jagriti Theatre) she tells the stories of Hanuman and the little Krishna respectively, specially to children. In simple English but with all the power of storytelling. Be there to be swept off your feet, to see your children laugh, cry and go on a journey with Vishaka Hari as she tells them the stories of mythological favourites. Very simply, no one else can do this in the country today like Vishaka can.
