Bangalore International Centre collaborates with the Drama Library to enliven our library calendar with the second edition of their multi-city play reading series, carefully curated and read simultaneously in two or more cities.
A play truly comes to life when it is read and heard, out loud. To this end, The Drama Library returned to Arghya Lahiri and Phalguni Vittal Rao to curate a second volume of scripts we want to hear and playwrights whose work we want to engage with more.
This week we hear, here –
Vol. 2 comprises of Girish Karnad’s Tughlaq – which investigates the political mood of disillusionment under the Delhi sultan Mohammed bin Tughlaq’s rule; Keffiyeh/Made in China by Dalia Taha – which underscores life under occupation in Palestine and western attitudes to the conflict; Scorched by Wadji Mouawad – a fiery tale of a mother who sends her two children on a quest to unravel their identity, from beyond the grave; and Lucy Kirkwood’s Mosquitoes – a spellbinding account of two sparring sisters set in the world of particle physics.
The (mildly) rehearsed readings will take place at Harkat Studios in Mumbai on alternate Mondays starting Jan 22.
The scripts will be available to read through January and March 2024 on www.thedramalibrary.com
