Stories of Society

What audiences take away from the show will be secondary. More important is what the director of the presentation absorbs from it during the process of imagining it, opines SP Singh Sengar of Shree Umapati Group, that’s organising a three-day theatre festival called Navratn Rangotsav. Only when the creator evolves with the process, can his experience be reflected in the narrative. Of the nine plays being shown, he has directed six and feels he’s grown more than six times in the course of putting them together. That’s what makes his craft meaningful.

All Idiots is based on the mismanagement and the weakness in our police department. Bade Aadmi depicts the dream of a common man who wanted to become a bada aadmi and how he takes all the wrong steps in order to fulfil that,” says Singh, adding, “Jai Hind, on the other hand tell the story of how Pakistani terrorist and anti-national influence the youth. Jis Lahore Nhi Dekhiya reveals the pain suffered by the families of both nations at the time of the partion in 1947. Taj Mahal Ka Tender is a comedy on the corruption rampant in our society.” In addition, there will be other plays too showcasing different aspects of society at large.
