Mr Shambho Shiva Shankara,  a play written and directed by Nagendra Shah will be staged on June 15 from 3:30 pm to 7:30 pm at K H Kala Soudha, Basavanagudi.

The play is an adaptation of Carlo Goldoni's Servant of Two Masters.  It is an out and out comedy and will surely keep the audiences entertained. 

The play is a situational comedy which has been topped with some contemporary yet simple and clean dialogues by the author.

The play is centered on the confusions created by a liar  who names himself differently to weave a web of stories, which, for the characters on stage is truth while for the audience the lies behind it is clearly visible maximizing the fun element. Each character has been very intricately sketched by the author and provides the necessary support to the script.

"This play has been staged across the globe in various languages and countries and now it is our turn to stage it.  It was first staged when M C Prakash started his repertory Rangabhaarathi. It was staged with the same name Shambho Shiva Shankara and was a huge success.  Whenever I saw P D Satishchandra, I always felt that he suited the character of Shambho and I told  him this as well. He agreed to do the play if I would direct it and here it is," said Nagendra Shah.
