This Popular Cultural Space Is Turning 8 With A Ratna Pathak Shah Storytelling Session

Shreya posted on 12 March

What Is It?

Hyderabad’s favourite cultural space — Lamakaan — is celebrating eight years of bringing quality theatre, seminars, book releases and exhibitions {among several other events} to the city. As part of the week long celebration is Ek Kahani Suno , a storytelling session by popular actress and playwright Ratna Pathak Shah, where she will be performing Ismat Chughtai’s Mughal Bacha.

Who Is It For?

The performance is relevant to both men and women alike — and for anyone who would love to listen to a good story. The play deals with matters of love and ego, and the subject is pretty timeless, isn’t it? Plus, this is your chance to see the brilliant Ratna Pathak Shah in performance. 

Why Should I Go For It?

Ismat Chugtai’s works have resonated across time spans and periods. If you have read any of her writing you would know that she is one of the seminal feminist Indian writers of Urdu and several of her stories have been turned into plays and performances by Motley, a theatre company actors Naseeruddin Shah and Benjamin Gilani cofounded in the 70s. Plus Pathak Shah is an active member of this troupe.

We are hoping that the nuances and finesse in Pathak’s narration, will resonate with the strength in Chughtai’s writing. Following the show, you also get to be a part of a discussion with Shah on the challenges of small and intimate theatre in contemporary India. All this — completely free of cost! Can you believe that? So go ahead and treat yourself to an evening of excellence.

Where: Lamakaan — An Open Cultural Space, Road no 1 Banjara Hills, opposite GVK One.
