Theatre

Park

Up for some drama to begin the weekend? Three men, three benches and a park — that’s what sets the scene for Sandbox Collective’s all-new production, Park. Directed by Nimi Ravindran {co-founder of the city-based arts collective} and written by Manav Kaul, the play revolves around the three characters who fight for the best seat. Seemingly a comedy, what sets it apart would be its subtle depiction of issues like space, territory and identity.

Price: INR 300

Timings: 8pm {3.30pm and 6.30pm on Sunday}
