If you enjoy watching live theatre, than this week might just be one of the most interesting for you as we bring 4 incredible plays to you. Recreating one of the most epic tales of Indian mythology, Puneet Issar brings us Mahabharat – The Epic Tale. Mahabharat is a play that congregates three pivotal characters of the epic – Duryodhan, Karna and Draupadi – through which we will discover the real reasons for the onslaught of this destructive war.
Bringing you a thrilling story of a retired Assistant Police Commissioner and his endeavours on one rainy night, Kusur is a play that will take you on a claustrophobic and thrilling, yet emotional and immersive journey.
