Campus theatre celebrates life in all its nuances

Atelier Theatre, a City-based theatre group actively involved in cultural activities with special focus on theatre and performing arts especially among youth, recently presented the best acts of  their campus theatre festival. Running in its seventh edition, ACT Atelier’s Campus Theatre Festival is one of the popular youth theatre festival.

The evening dedicated to three dramas started with  the play The Private Ear by  Shunya – Ramjas College theatre society. The 55-minutes long English play is set in a musky London bedsit where reclusive Bob, normally used to giving his full attention to his record collection calls in a favour from a savvy friend Ted, to help him treat his date, the beautiful but shy Doreen, to a meal.

This play was followed by Batch 2002 by Ibtida Theatre Society of Hindu College. What is the one thing that keeps us going and one thing that breaks the monotony of our lives? It is conflict.

We live by our ideals, our fundamentals, our rules and we believe so strongly in them, that we can fight over them. But eventually, our ideals, our values, and our fundamentals all change, so then what is it that we call ‘ours’? The play revolves around all these questions and subsequently presents set of answers among
the audiences.

The last act of the day was Black Comedy by the dramatics society of the Shri Ram College of Commerce. Aditya and Naina, an engaged couple, have invited a millionaire to see Aditya’s artwork, and to impress him have stolen antiques and furniture from a neighbour. Naina’s formidable father is also expected. The lights fuse, and the arrival of several unexpected visitors effectively wrecks the evening. What looks like a perfectly pleasant evening ahead, slowly disintegrates, bit by bit into a chaotic affair!
