The much-awaited Deccan Herald Theatre Festival is here and it begins with a stellar performance by the city's best known thespian Arundhati Nag, playing the central character in the German play 'Mother Courage and her children'.

The play by Bertolt Brecht about a woman who tried to profit from a war is considered one of the greatest anti-war dramas of all time. Expect lavish productions for the show in Chowdiah Memorial Hall on Sunday. It is produced by Mumbai-based theatre group QTP.
