Thus Spake Shoorpanakha, So Said Shakuni

by Poile Sen Gupta

It's not just a play, but an event to celebrate the World Theatre Week & World Theatre Day... and campaign to raise funds for a Theru-k-koothu Manram being proposed in Purisai...

The Play will be premiered on 23rd March and will run for 6 shows till March 27th - the World Theatre Day.

Simultaneously, as part of the event, would be held an unique Artists for Theatre exhibition, featuring 5 of City's most exciting and happening artists - Asma Menon, Siva M, Benitha Perciyal, B.O. Shailesh & Jacob Jebaraj.

These artists would create works exclusive for the Exhibition to be held from March 26th (Inauguration) till March 31st.

The works would be put on sale and proceeds would go towards supporting the above said cause. These works are to be based on the play to be performed. So miss not this unique event to hit Planet Chennai Theatre. And Masquerade is once again proud to be in the vanguard of an event that hopes to bring both Artists and Theatre performers, Art Lovers and Theatre Enthusiasts together.
