A brilliant and original piece of work, this hilarious romantic comedy not only depicted a play in a play but also provided a comprehensive insight into the world of theatre with all its behind-the-scenes madness.

Adaptations from Ruskin Bond – With rights provided by Penguin Books, this Creashakthi undertaking brought the stories of the legendary author to life.  Supported by music from K.M Conservatory, the short plays explored a myriad of genres ranging from comedy to horror, satire to drama and enthralled the audience with the sheer talent on display.
