For tis festival, advance booking is important as its hard to find ticket on same day. In case you want to try your luck, reach the place before 1 Hr at least. Most of the shows are at 7:00 pm, so reach by 6:00 pm and register yourself in waiting list !!!
I don't want to share the story of 'Vanbhatt ki Atmakatha' here... but in short I enjoyed it... Pure Hindi play and some of very typical hindi words are used in various dialogs... and there are some awesome jokes at regular time intervals :)
I was again amazed to see the theater talent and now I have started recognizing these folks.. Most of the artists in this play were their in Begum ka takiya last year !!!
Duration of this was 2:00 Hrs and there was a break of 10 minutes !!!
If you want to buy advanced tickets for future shows, timings are 11:00 am to 4:00 pm @ NSD, Mandi House, Near Metro Station !!!
Last year I got to know about the event through Delhievents.com but this time it was not listed there.. It was sad :(
I have seen lot many plays in past but dresses used in this one were most colorful ever !!!
This time shows are taking place at Kamani Auditorium in Mandi House and Sammukh Auditorium inside National School of Drama, Delhi !!!
If you have never seen any theater performance till date, Summer Theater festival is the best time to witness some of the best plays of the year !!!
Last year I went for 'Begum ka Takiya' and liked it so much... Finally planned again with other set of friends :)
