Still We Are Saints

Note: This is a a fundraiser for the Seva Sadan Association in Malleshwaram, which organizes shelter and training for destitute women and children. All proceeds of the show will be donated to Seva Sadan. We appeal to the audience to donate generously to this noble cause. This event has been sponsored by Navrathan Jewellers and Corporation bank. The event partners are Shoppers stop, indianstage, bookmyshow and radio one.

Synopsis: “Still we are saints” is story of one- two antipodal characters who are in pursuit of a common goal- a happy ending and a gateway to a great future. The lead characters learn the ways of politics, rhetoric and one-upmanship en route to the top of the college food chain. The story unfolds in intriguing fashion through the eyes of a starry- eyed junior who describes the chain of events as he gets initiated to college life. The narrative is laced with satires on college going fundas, frequent monologues, pop culture parodies, ad jingles, impersonations, farcical, surreal vignettes and dialogue laden with repartee juxtaposed with everyday conversation. Five actors play the role of over a hundred characters with aplomb in the space of seventy minutes to bring the reminiscences of college life in front of the audience. The number of characters was deliberately limited to less than 140, keeping in mind the attention spans of the twitter generation!

Play: The Interview

Winner of 4 Mahindra Excellence in Theatre Awards, and chosen for Hot Ink at the Lark, a festival of new writing in New York, The Interview is “a tightly-packed action comedy” with “brilliant contemporary writing”.

A bright young man, holding his resume close, waits nervously at the reception of one of the country’s largest corporations. Minutes later he is called in for his job interview. But nothing he learnt in college, university or his last few jobs has prepared him for what comes next. But he’s keen to make it through this. After all, it is a job to die for.

“Smoothly orchestrated… the script is tighter than last year’s budget… it holds on to its secrets and ends up being an office play without clichés… Don’t miss this.”– Time Out

“Fast paced, action packed… smart writing… brims with dark humour… more than just a highly entertaining, laugh a minute comedy… a slice of reality… young and
contemporary, very here-and-now, and yes, very, very funny”– The Hindu

“The writer and director deftly add on layers of humour, the balance of power shifts suddenly between characters, the audience is constantly kept in a stage of surprise…” – Bombay Times
