‘KISI AUR KA SAPNA’
Written by Dr. Nand Kishore Acharya
Directed by Shahrukh Surani
It is the story of five actors rehearsing a script found in a garbage bin. The play traverses through different eras in history and politics, using the journey to display the various shades of a theatre actor's life. The conflict between acting and reality, different interpretations of an idea, 'does a script really need an actor?' etc are just some of the issues the play deals with.
