'Magadi Days' play on February 8

Come weekend, theatre buffs in city can watch a play based on a series of political consequences that arise in the town of Magadi, near Bangalore. Theatre group from Silicon city We Move Theatre will stage ‘Magadi Days’ on February 8, at Vanaranga, Rangayana, from 7 pm onwards.

According to press release, members of We Move Theatre after presenting 75 shows and 11 productions, is now set to stage its 12th production. This new play written and directed by Abhishek Iyengar in Kannada is a political satire, which revolves around the characters inspired from the famed BBC’s soap ‘Yes Minister’. 

The story of the play unfolds when the State of Karnataka gets its new chief minister who is highly educated and a former IT employee. With great ambitions and desires, he dons the new role to bring in transparency in the way the government functions. In order to achieve this, he orders all his ministers to update their status of work on Facebook, twitter and other social media network. 

Not satisfied with this new rule or policy, the executive of the government headed by the chief secretary of the State plots a plan to bring down the government. What happens next is the crux of the play Magadi days. 

Caught amid this battle between the political section and the bureaucracy are two other characters ‘Ibu’ and ‘lakkawwa’ who hail from Magadi.

The organisers claim that the play has been written in contemporary Kannada language. Lyrics for the songs have been written by Abhijith Mahesh, for which Abhishek Narian has scored the music.
