The Hindu to hold Metro Plus Theatre Festival in Chennai from August 1-10

Chennai’s theatre lovers can look forward to 10 days of plays, workshops and a symposium. The Hindu is bringing its Metro Plus Theatre Festival 2008 that would be held in Chennai from August 1-10. The Festival, which was first launched in 2005, would be accompanied by workshops to encourage youngsters to interact with theatre professionals and a symposium on theatre.

Plays from both India and abroad would be featured in this year’s Festival. Of the seven plays this year, there is one from Korea, one from New York, two from Mumbai, one from Chandigarh, one from Bangalore and an Indo-German collaboration.

All plays would start at 7:30 pm and would be of durations between 90 minutes and 120 minutes. The entire Festival would be held at Sir Mutha Venkatasubba Rao Concert Hall (Lady Andal School premises, Harrington Road). A host of allied activities have also been planned at the venue, starting an hour before every play to add on to the excitement of the Festival.

V Kalidas, VP-Advertising, The Hindu, said, “The presence of theatre groups from various regions of the country and the world would give the event a rich flavour.”

Ratish Pandey, GM, Marketing, Bose Corporation, said, “The Festival offers an opportunity to appreciate theatre as an art form.” For the second successive year, Bose Corporation is the main sponsor of the event, along with LG LCD TV, Nippon Paint, Mahindra Holidays & Resorts Ltd as associate sponsors. Bru Ice Cappuccino, ICCR (Indian Council for Cultural Relations), The Park, Radio One and Evam are among the other partners for the Festival.
