JAMMU, June 30: Theatre group ‘Natrang’ here today staged the play ‘Naqshe Mei Nidhan’ written by Mani Madhukar and directed by Neeraj Kant.
The play talks about preserving nature and atrocities of coppers (name given to the cops in England).
The play opens with four people in joker’s attire, trying to engross the audience. These four characters are seen holding placards with communism, socialism and unemployment written on them.
A conversation strikes between the crowd and these four people, the crowd is seen pointing the atrocities of leaders towards the common and ignorant people. The crowd, in their satirical comments reminds how they are capable of breaking a revolution if their problems are ignored.
In a spur of a moment crowd diffuses with these four jokers and the act starts. One from the four characters transforms into an old man, the second one becomes a census officer, while he’s in the middle of his act, taking essential details from the old man, argument breaks between the second and the third character regarding geography and demographics of India.
Actors who performed in the play were Abhinav Sharma, Chirag Anand, Udit Sagar, Sumit Raina, Aarti Bhagat, Kananpreet Kaur and Akash Wadhwan. The lights were designed and executed by Neeraj Kant and the show was coordinated by Mohd Yaseen.
