‘ನಾಟ್ಯದೇವಚರಿತೆ’ ನಾಟಕದ ಕಥಾವಸ್ತುವು ಹಾಸ್ಯ ಮತ್ತು ವಿಡಂಬನೆಯ ಮಿಶ್ರಣದಿಂದ ಕೂಡಿದೆ. ನಾಟಕವು ಶ್ರೀಮಂತ ವ್ಯಕ್ತಿಯೊಬ್ಬನ ಕುಟುಂಬದ ಸುತ್ತ ಸುತ್ತುತ್ತದೆ. ಆ ಶ್ರೀಮಂತನು ಧಾರ್ಮಿಕತೆಯ ಬೂಟಾಟಿಕೆಯನ್ನು ಪ್ರದರ್ಶಿಸುವ ಒಬ್ಬ ನಕಲಿ ಗುರುವಿನ ತಂತ್ರಕ್ಕೆ ಮಾರುಹೊಗುತ್ತಾನೆ. ಕಳ್ಳ ಗುರುವು ಶ್ರೀಮಂತ ವ್ಯಕ್ತಿಯ ಪ್ರಶ್ನಾತೀತ ಅನುಸರಣೆಯ ಲಾಭವನ್ನು ಪಡೆಯುತ್ತಾನೆ. ಇದರಿಂದ ಬೇಸೆತ್ತ ಕುಟುಂಬವು ಉಪಾಯವಾದ ಯೋಜನೆಯನ್ನು ರೂಪಿಸುವಲ್ಲಿ ತೊಡಗುತ್ತದೆ. ಈ ಯೋಜಬೆಯ ಬಲೆಯಲ್ಲಿ ಕಪಟ ಗುರುವು ಸಿಕ್ಕಿಬೀಳಿತ್ತಾನೆಯೇ ಎಂಬ ಕಾತುರತೆಯನ್ನು ಈ ಪ್ರಸ್ತುತಿಯು ಪ್ರೇಕ್ಷಕರಲ್ಲಿ ಉಂಟುಮಾಡುತ್ತದೆ. ನಾಟಕವು ಮುಖ್ಯ ವಿಷಯವಾದ ಧಾರ್ಮಿಕ ನಡವಳಿಕೆಯಲ್ಲಿನ ಅಪ್ರಾಮಾಣಿಕತೆ, ತಪ್ಪು ಜನರನ್ನು ನಂಬುವ ಅಪಾಯಗಳು ಮತ್ತು ಯಾರನ್ನಾದರೂ ಕುರುಡಾಗಿ ಅನುಸರಿಸುವುದನ್ನು ಹಾಸ್ಯದ ಲೇಪನದಲ್ಲಿ ತೋರಿಸುತ್ತದೆ. ಹಾಸ್ಯ ಮತ್ತು ವಿಡಂಬನೆಯ ಮೂಲಕ, `ನಾಟ್ಯದೇವಚರಿತೆ~ ಕುರುಡು ನಂಬಿಕೆಯ ಪರಿಣಾಮಗಳನ್ನು ಮತ್ತು ಧಾರ್ಮಿಕ ಬೂಟಾಟಿಕೆಗಳ ಹಾಸ್ಯಮಯ ಅಂಶಗಳನ್ನು ಬಿಚ್ಚಿಡುತ್ತದೆ.

The play ‘Natyadevacharite,’ revolves around a rich man who becomes vulnerable to a fake imposter guru pretending to be pious and religious. The plot unfolds through a mix of comedy and drama, revealing the guru’s insincerity. The guru takes advantage of the wealthy man`s unquestioning admiration. As the family plots a smart plan, the audience is invited to watch the unfolding events, wondering if the imposter will be caught. The main theme humorously explores the dishonesty in religious behavior, the risks of trusting the wrong people, and the outcomes of blindly following someone, all presented in a satirical manner. The play aims to entertain while shedding light on the dangers of blindly trusting those who manipulate religious appearances for personal gain. Through its mix of comedy and drama, ‘Natydevacharite’ unfolds a tale that prompts the audience to reflect on the consequences of misplaced trust and the humorous aspects of religious hypocrisy.

About the Team

Sanchaya is a theatre group which has made a name for itself in the art and culture circles of Bangalore. Established in 1988, Sanchaya was the dream child of G. S. Rama Rao, a teacher at MES High School, Jayanagar, Bangalore. Fondly called GSR by Sanchayans, he envisioned the role of art and culture in moulding human personalities, and brought together his students to form a troupe. Aptly named Sanchaya (meaning “Coming together of”), it was intended to be a melting pot of drama, literature, and creativity. The team started out by putting together plays by the then students and now, founding members. The very first play “Vallabhapuriya Dantakathe” set the beginning for the wonderful journey that is in its 33rd year now. Many plays followed and with it, the transformation of the troupe from a student-centered group to a professionally managed popular theatre team. Today we have a repertoire of more than 40 plays. Along the way, we have had gratifying achievements that make us proud. We have reached theatre lovers across many cities in India. We have performed at “Bharat Rang Mahotsav” hosted by National School of Drama, New Delhi. The play “Pratibimbagalu” garnered wide critical acclaim for the multi-dimensional portrayal of a classic play. We have also organized many Theatre Festivals to provide a platform for young amateur teams to showcase their plays. With the vision of bringing all the theatre teams of Bangalore together, we organized a flagship event called “Ranga-Ugadi”. We call these endeavors “Enriching Theatre Brotherhood”. Not restricting our vista to plays alone, we have been organizing musical events as well. Sanchaya’s directorial repertoire includes prominent theatre artists like C.G. Krishnamurthy, R. Nagesh, S. Surendranath, Suresh Anagalli, Krishnamurthy Kavathar, S. K. Madhava Rao, Abbur Jayatheertha, Kathlu Satya, Iqbal Ahmed, Joseph John, Shashidhar Barighat, among others. It has groomed many artists who have become famous film and TV actors, producers, and directors today. We are also very proud of having enticed a whole new generation of youngsters towards theatre, keeping with the true spirit of GSR. Our theatre family, as we like to call it, has grown to include more than 200 members.
