Suar Chala Space Ko
Directed by Shaili Sathyu
A hilarious play about a smelly pig and his friends who travel to outer space! Then a sudden encounter with aliens lands them in a big mess. Actors play a variety of characters, including aliens, with movement and dance adding to the high-energy performance. The story touches upon friendship, adventure and of course the ‘swine flu’!

The Jungle Book
Adapted & Directed by Vaishali Bisht
An original adaptation, it reclaimed the age old tale, bringing it to us in an unmistakeably Indian format. With singing, dancing, action scenes, comedy and whole lot of jumping around-the play is a rollicking roller coaster ride through some exciting uncharted terrain!
