For the first time ever, the students of Ahmedabad’s Mudra Institute of Communi-cation bring their annual theatre production to the Capital.

Produced by the in-house theatre society Sankalp, the play is titled Silence, the Court is in Session. A socio-political satire on the hyprocrisy of the middle class, it revolves around Leela Benare, who is part of an amateur theatre group and a school teacher. The perception of a group of farcical, petty, self-righteous individuals about a 34 year old, unmarried woman is the dominant theme of this play.

“Theatre is given a lot of importance in Delhi and even the audience is very responsive in this city, so we decided to get our production here,” says the director of the play, Neha Vyas. Sankalp, which was formed 10 years ago has a team of young theatre enthusiasts who handle production in areas like direction, costumes, stage design, acting and script writing. “It gives us an opportunity to explore various forms of expression and performances,” says a student.

The play will be performed at the India Islamic Cultural Centre on December 13 at 6.30 pm.
