Here’s a piece of good news for theatre lovers as Old World Theatre Festival (OWTF) will commence from October 12 at Habitat World. The 10-day long festival will bring some of the best plays on stage to promote and nurture theatre.

Recognised as one of the oldest and most prestigious theatre festivals, OWTF will welcome prominent theatre groups of the country and give its audience the finest skits. Over the years OWTF has been a catalyst that has triggered several new and laudable theatre ventures. The lineup this year is exciting as well.

The festival will open with the premiere of Mahesh Dattani’s new play Where Did I Leave My Purdah? directed by Lillete Dubey while the closing play will be Nandita Das’ directorial debut Between The Lines where the splendid actor will also be onstage.

The other plays include The Bureaucrat – A Comedy written by Anuvab Pal and directed by Rahul da Cunha; Nothing Like Lear, a performance based on Shakespeare’s King Lear directed by Rajat Kapoor and Chinese Coffee directed by Danish Husain.

Naya Theatre established in 1959 by the legendary director Habib Tanvir will showcase Konark directed by Ramchandar Singh.

Speaking about the event, Vidyun Singh says, “OWTF is one of the oldest and successful festivals of theatre in the city.

“We attempt to bring not only the best works on stage but this also provides an opportunity to collegiate theatre to showcase their mettle.

“For students it will be a medium to enter into the mainstream.”

The other theatre artistes who will be part of the festival are Anu Menon, Soni Razdan, Bugs Bhargava Krishna, Atul Kumar and Aamir Bashir Khan.
