Court Martial

No children under 14

Sudesh Deepak’s play is about the trial of a young, upright Indian solider who has shot dead his commanding officer. What emerges in the trial scene is a highly gripping drama about the circumstances that led the solider to commit the crime. Deepak brilliantly exposes the manner in which a class-ridden society hides the truth to preserve the status quo.

They call it a civil war but there’s nothing civil in this. Nothing civil at all.

They came from Damascus, from Halab, from Banias where the bombs fall day and night and wounded children look like sleeping angles. Now they live in camps and abandoned buildings not only in Lebanon and Jordan but all over the Middle East. Now they are refugees all over the world. Now Syria is just a distant memory, a home forever lost.

A woman is cooking Kebbe, a classical Syrian dish obsessively in her kitchen and trying to come to terms with what she saw during her trip to Jordan, Lebanon and Syria looking for her lost lover.

Swing Dance originate in the 1930s taking on different forms: Collegiate Shag, Lindy Hop, Charleston, and Balboa. Today, Lindy Hop is the most popular one left. While fast Lindy Hop is an upbeat and a true test of trust and stamina, the swing dance basic is fun, light-hearted, and quite entertaining. The basic steps (rock step, triple step, and more) will be taught in the first half of the night. The remainder will see music playing and the group swing dancing with each other.

Funny Fortnites with LOLWaalay

After 6 years and many hundreds of shows later, we, the LOLWaalay will depart from our signature short-form style and bring you some never before seen improvised, experimental long-form! Also, in addition to our act, we will feature some of our funny friends as well!

If you were to tie the knot with long-form improv via arranged marriage, here is how a rishta aunty would describe it:

‘Long-form improvisation is an unscripted performance of anywhere between 20-90 minutes based off a single audience suggestion. Common elements include monologues, games and series of inter-connected scenes. Long form is much closer to theatre than short form. The final product often appears to be an improvised play. According to a popular improv director, long form is to jazz as short form is to pop’.
What an insightful and eloquent rishta aunty.

Date: Thursday, 21st March 2019

Time: 08:30 PM – 09:45 PM

Venue: Faraar Gallery, T2F
Ticket: Rs.300/-
