Shakespeare in India

And that was exactly how the play was done.... an indian cast, speaking in their respective native dialect, costumes which were a mix between the anglo-western and a mordern day adaptation of royal indian..... a Mid summer's night dream it was! the body work of the actors and actresses was simply beautiful... and ofcourse the rope climbing was totally fascinating.... barring ofcourse some scenes which were too real for comfort....

Bucks theatre (nandanam) was a perfect setting... open air, with a sweet unidentifiable fragrance ( i thought it was fro the odomos, but it wasn't... i hav a hunch it was a part of the props to give us a feel of the night... and i almost went mad not knowing where it came from)! For some reason, the audience was quite a regular bunch, unlike the usual hep aunties and uncles who make you wonder where do such people dissappear during the day.....
