Skylight (24th - 26th February)

OddBird Theatre & Foundation has something awesome in mind for all theatre enthusiasts - an Indian revival of Sir David Hare's blockbuster play, Skylight, is being showcased and it’ll infuse you with a punchy dose of culture! 

The play is all about a school teacher visiting her ex lover, and eventually they would’ve indulged in some good old romance, but instead, what follows is an unexpected reunion which sees the two ex lovers discuss matters of the heart in a passionate and amusing attempt at realizing their compromises in life. Over the course of the play, you’ll get to witness their battle over ideologies and mutual desires. Hmmm...intriguing to say the least!

Entry | Rs 1,200
