There was something for all

Shadowlights Entertainment presented ‘Cappuccino’, a series of short plays, in the City recently. The ten short plays revolved around romance, politics, satire, thriller and comedy. While some were adaptations, some were original works.

A puppet show (socio-political satire), written and directed by Vivek R, was also a part of the production. The plot revolved around a puppet that committed suicide due to which the show could not be conducted as planned. An IT professional, who dabbles with theatre during his free time, Vivek said, “Though our ideas clash at times, we still learn a lot from each other thanks to the amount we discuss, emote, enact, write and rehearse.

When we get together, there is a flow of energy.” The other short plays included ‘Smell of Rain’ (romantic comedy), ‘Milton’ (psycho-thriller), ‘Argument Clinic’ (comedy), ‘Loo natics’ (adult slapstick comedy), ‘Role Reversal’ (drama), ‘ VivichuVivich’ (which revolved around Women’s Day celebrations), ‘Investigation’ (dark/slapstick humour), ‘For The Same Reason’ (drama) and ‘You or Me’.

Vinod, another artiste who works in a bank, said, “We are all in love with theatre and look forward to the roaring applause we get after a performance. In the end, that’s what every artiste is looking for.” Rijita Mukherjee, a student of Christ University, said, “We do not want to preach. We are here to celebrate theatre and our love for it. The response was overwhelming and we felt that all the hard work that we put in was worth it. The applause and the laughter were like music to our ears.”  She added, “As entertainers, we should not stick just to one genre. Instead, we need to continuously evolve, learn and grow.” “We want to be versatile and explore different genres of theatre,” summed up Ranjit Kakkayur, one of the founders of ‘Shadowlight’.
