This year's annual play was 'BORO PISHIMA' which ran two highly successful sold out shows
Probasee Natya Sangha, the local community theatre group, is rehearsing for their maiden production Kal Baisakhi. The play is hardly ready needing intense rehearsals. Anu plays the lead role and is the main stay of this production when two days before the play her strict, conservative and tyrannical Boro Pishima arrives unannounced from Lucknow. Even Anu’s father, the Professor is terrorised by her. If she comes to know, she would never let Anu do theatre on stage. Never!
The drama unfolds in Anu’s lounge which has been doubling up as the rehearsal space! The company is terrorised, nervous, confused. The only ray of hope is Sambhu, the stage manager who is a cool customer with the brain of a “master criminal”.
A host of colourful characters of various shades including a paan chewing fun loving aunt, a highly strung director, two overzealous stage assistants, an aspirant actress, two candidly innocent children and several nervous actors of various dimensions take the audience on a hilariously funny ride that captures the joy and celebration of a small community getting together to have innocent fun!
