So Much Drama: Tom Alter Plays Ghalib In Delhi

Bhavna posted on 27 April

What Is It?

The play Ghalib, performed by the Pierrot's troupe, is an informative account of a very intriguing man named Mirza Asadullah Khan Ghalib. The play depicts his journey from a talented child, to being a young carefree guy, and finally ending up as a mature middle aged man.

The play is laced with humour, and the best part is Ghalib's ghazals {recited, sung and performed by Tom Alter}.

Who Is It For?

The age bar is eight years and above. If you know Hindi and a little bit of Urdu, you can attend the event, and we hope you will.

Why Should I Go For It?

To get in touch with the history of Ghalib, and learn about the life of a very famous poet whose lines are immortal and often quoted.


It would be ideal to arrive 20 minutes before the play begins to collect the tickets. Also, look out for the other play titled Mirza Ghalib In New Delhi by the same troupe if you're interested in comedy.
