Dianne K Webb directing a reading of Aditi Kapil’s Agnes Under the Big Top

Our friend Dianne K Webb is directing a reading of Aditi Kapil’s Agnes Under the Big Top on Saturday, May 13th with Next Iteration Theater Co.’s Intercultural Play Reading series. dianne has previously directed with Shunya (Bhopal and Art) and acted with us (1-888-DIAL-INDIA). Shunya also produced Aditi Kapil’s youth play The Adventures of Hanuman in 2012, so we have all sorts of connections here! The reading series also includes two other plays: Lauren Yee’s IN A WORD and Madeleine George’s PRECIOUS LITTLE on the Thursday and Friday before. We’re looking forward to it, dianne!

Step Inside, Scene 1

It is with great pleasure that Shunya announces its cast for the upcoming August show – Partition.   Over the next few months as we prepare for the show, we will be sharing experiences, opinions, and other outrageous happenings in and around the rehearsal room.

But to jump start things, we want to invite all of you to step inside Avant Garden on Saturday, May 4th from 7 PM until they kick us out.   You can meet members of the cast and crew and learn how you can become involved with this particular show and with the organization as a whole.   We’ll have food and drinks – but more importantly there’s an open stage and microphone, because that’s what it’s all about.  Step in and step up and tell us what you’re thinking about.  You can sing, hum, act, fly, juggle, slam, or twiddle your thumbs.  Whatever puts some fire in your step and some zip in your soul.

We look forward to seeing you May 4th and continuing the conversation!

Partition by Ira Hauptman.  Opens August 2nd @ 14 Pews!  Featuring:  Taher Lokhandwala, John Kaiser, Bradley Winkler, Anjana Menon, and Jeff Dorman!

Shunya actors in MADCAP 24

Once again Country Playhouse is presenting their tremendously fun MADCAP 24. Shunya has participated in the last several years, and once again two Shunya actors will be on stage: Sriram Vengalathur and Jesal Kapasi. This is always a fantastic show — one night only! — and it is amazing what the playwrights can come up with in the 10-12 hours they have. If you do make it out, drop me a line at Sanjay@ShunyaTheatre.org.
