Sutradhar Presents Its first Telugu Play “ABBEY! EM LEDU…” Writer: Sankaramanchi Parthasarathy Director: Vinay Varma. A loving couple, their “deaf” cook, a colorful boss, two intruders, a lost ring, a Doctor who never turns up… and an adventure with the “forbidden apple”. On a relaxed weekend, a young homemaker loses her expensive ring as she’s leaving for a family function. The husband, as it happens often, suspects the deaf and “ailing” cook – at loggerheads with him all the time – of stealing and promises to find the ring by the time she returns. Enter the boss, planning a rendezvous. Absence of wife at home brings in sneaky opportunities for the husband to explore. As he steps out, two small-time thieves enter for a quick robbery. The Boss now pretends to be the cook in front of the intruders, whom he presumes to be the Doctor and his Compounder, misleading to a mashup of events. What follows next is a comedy of errors, creating more confusion, just as the ring is found…And the wife returns…Who is the thief? Does the wife eventually get her ring back? Find out all this and much more harmless mischief in Sankaramanchi Parthasarathy’s Telugu One-Act “Abbey! Em Ledu…”, directed by Vinay Varma. At Lamakaan on 20th and 21st February 2020. 8 pm on both the days. Ticket: Rs. 200/-, available with www.bookmyshow.com Contact: Swetha @ 9949567427 and Subhra @ 7337420894

Dastan-e-Tamanna-e-Sarfaroshi is based on the Kakori Revolution, also known as Kakori Episode that happened on August 9, 1925. This musical Dastan brings to life the political beliefs, courage and the struggle for freedom of the revolutionaries of that time. The Dastan primarily focuses on Ashfaqulla Khan and Ram Prasad Bismil. Although these revolutionaries came a generation before Bhagat Singh, and greatly inspired him, not much has been done to keep them alive in our history. Ashfaq and Bismil, were not only the main thinkers behind the Kakori Episode, but also shared a deep friendship. In India’s National Movement, their friendship was a great example of Hindu-Muslim unity. Both of them were born in the same city and became close friends. Together, they fought the battle for freedom and sacrificed their lives for it. They both dreamt of an India where every one was treated equally and no one was discriminated against on the basis of caste or religion. Passionately written and narrated by Himashu Bajpai and woven together with the poetry by Ashfaq and Bismil that has been beautifully set to music and sung by Vedanth Bharadwaj. Saurabh Joshi will be accompanying them on percussions.
