Murder Most Foul

Meera Mujumdar is off watching a play with an old flame. Meanwhile, her husband, Niranjan, is fine-tuning a plan to murder her. It is foolproof, the alibis are ingenious and the date is fixed. So, one rainy night, Meera sleeps alone in her house. At the designated time, the telephone rings. As Meera gets up to answer it, she has no idea of the dark shadow that lurks behind her drapes. What happens next is the subject of the play, A Perfect Murder, directed by Vijay Kenkre. It will be staged at Yashwantrao Chavan Natyagruha at 12.30 pm and Ram Krishna More Auditorium at 6 pm. Entry: Rs 200 onward. Check here: https://in.bookmyshow.com/plays/a-perfect-murder/ET00089658

Light and Shadow

A performance, titled Tholu Bommalata, brings the traditional shadow theater tradition of Andhra Pradesh to an online performance. Tholu Bommalata refers to puppets created from goat and sheep skin and designed and painted by artisans. They appear on stage, behind a white curtain, and the audience can only view the coloured shadows, but not the actual puppets, by means of a light source. In the performance, painting, music, dance, engraving, acting and narrative storytelling come together in a riveting entertainer. On BookMyShow, 8 pm. Charges: Rs 30.
