The 3rd Baisakhi Theatre Festival commenced in the city on Friday evening. Khajoor Te Atkya by Jairoop Jeevan was the first played to be staged at the three-day fest. Advocate Naveen Vermam,a middle-class man,lives an uncomplicated life in Shanti Vihar with his wife,Shanti,who enjoys readings crime fiction and is infatuated by its characters.
All kinds of suspicious characters land up in the otherwise peaceful home and produce a chaotic situation with hilarious visuals such as a walking corpse,ghost and disappearing objects.
For the fundamental physical and psychological training of an actor,it is undoubtedly one of the best plays. Actors use a cupboard for diverse actions – to act like corpse,fall on the ground,roll over in a carpet and juggle with a pistol. All the acts of this student production created a realistic illusion, said Sudesh Sharma of Theatre For Theatre.
