JAMMU, Nov 18: Theatre group ‘Natrang’ here today staged Hindi play ‘Girgit’ directed by Balwant Thakur.
The play was based on a Russian short story by Anton Chekhov and was a satire on the present socio-political system.
The play revolved around a dog and a corrupt police officer, who changes colours like a chameleon, every time as the situation changes irrespective of right or wrong.
In the play, a dog bites a pickpocket who approaches the police to help him roundup owner but all in-vain.
A passerby hints that the dog belongs to the local Minister as he saw a similar dog moving around his Bungalow. On getting his clue, the police officer starts beating the pickpocket for teasing a respectable dog.
Ultimately, a servant of the minister recognizes the dog as the one belonging to minister’s brother who came from Delhi. The dog is then escorted back home with full official protocol.
Sushant Charak, Rakshit Arora, Meenakshi Bhagat, Manoj Lalotra, Shivam Singh, Shivam Sharma, Brijesh Avtar Sharma, Ajay Kumar and Arti Devi acted in the play.
The supporting staff included Neeraj and Mohd Yaseen.
