Our 25th Year and World Theatre Day show - Parrot's Lies...

This World Theatre Day...

on March 27th, 2018...

We bring you one of our more popular shows... PARROT'S LIES

Parrots-FB-Cover-Mobile

Masquerade is entering 25 and we start our 25th season this WORLD THEATRE DAY - MARCH 27 - with a production we had mounted earlier in 2001 and 2006... We return to it, 12 years later...
PARROT'S LIES...

An author has written a play for an actor, with whom he has scores to settle, and influences the Producer of their theatre company to cast the actor in the lead role. The actor seizes his chance, has a surprise in store for the artist. A Twist in the tale…

PARROT'S LIES is an expose of employees in the creative industry, constantly with knives on the backs of others, in a desperate attempt to regain their lost reputations. PARROT'S LIES is a wild and disgusting game of power, a horribly realistic representation of actions and gestures - acts of oppression and gestures of subjugation and genuflections.

The universal value and its contemporaneity is unmistakable...

Andreas Marber, born in 1961, is one of contemporary Germany’s respected and popular playwrights and dramaturge at the Nationalhaus (National Theatre) Hamburg. PARROT'S LIES had its Hamburg premiere in January 2001

The play has some strong language. Restricted to 16 years and above audience.

The Occasion:  March 27th is universally celebrated as the World Theatre Day and Masquerade has been celebrating this day each year since 1996 in Chennai. Each year, we perform a production on this day in the company of other theatre artists as audience. We also open it out to general ticketed public. This year we also introduce to the larger theatre community Chennai’s one of its kind BLACK BOX STUDIO, located in ADYAR!
