So far, Atta Galatta has screened three plays: Nandita Das and Divya Jagdale’s Between the Lines, Siddarth Kumar’s The Job and Mahesh Dattani’s Dance Like a Man.

“It’s interesting, but people are still trying to figure out whether it’s a play or a film,” says Lakshmi Shankar, co-founder of the bookstore. For the first screening, held at the end of last year, people were expecting Nandita Das to come perform she says.
