An NCPA-National Theater Live presentation (London)
Emmy (for Killing Eve) and BAFTA (for Help) winner Jodie Comer makes her West End debut at the UK premiere of Suzie Miller’s award-winning play Prima Facie. Tessa is a young and brilliant lawyer. She has worked her way up from her working-class background to be at the top of her game; defend, cross-examine and win. An unexpected event forces him to confront the lines where the patriarchal power of law, the burden of proof, and morality diverge. Prima Facie takes us to the heart of where emotion and experience collide with the rules of the game. Justin Martin directs this solo tour de force, captured live from the intimate Harold Pinter Theater in London’s West End.

An NCPA presentation in association with Sanskaar Valley School, Bhopal
A brilliant scientist, exemplary president, academician, writer, philosopher and a visionary who believed that we are all born with a divine fire within us, Dr. Abdul Kalam was a role model and inspiration to millions of Indians, especially for the younger generation.
His extraordinary journey through various stages: from a carefree young man in Rameswaram to an engineering student pursuing his passion, to the aerospace scientist who took India’s space program to another level, to a president like no other, comes to life through a staging of his autobiography Wings of Fire told by the voice of the eminent poet and writer Gulzar. Over 60 students from Sanskaar Valley School, Bhopal, through lyrical dance moves and theatrical performance, enact the various events that influenced Kalam and led him to achieve all that he did in the life.
Its inspiring triad of aspiration (khwahish), hope (umeed) and confidence (yakeen) is sure to stay with the play’s young actors as well as audiences, young and old, long after the curtain rolls.

For centuries, women have played the role of protagonists in Indian poetry and song. From female divinity to nayikas and ganikas, the presence of women has been remarkable in Indian classical literature and songs. Often these verses and songs were written by male poets writing with the female voice, thereby transcending certain gender barriers that were otherwise insurmountable. And yet their writing was colored by the social context in which they found themselves.

Renowned singer and songwriter, Shubha Mudgal presents a selection of verses written by great masters of Indian poetry that reflect perspectives on sexuality, beauty, societal norms and the stigma attached to women from an earlier era. Set to music by Mudgal, the verses tell stories of women, some full of sensuality and unabashed eroticism, others of the terrible and tragic challenges and stigmas that women continue to face and struggle with. day.

Gulzar’s Boski Ke Kaptan Chacha is a humorous play that sees elders being educated by children for change. A group of children in a multi-ethnic chawl that is home to several families consider an ex-soldier, Jagir Singh, as their mentor. Affectionately known as Kaptan Chacha, Singh plans to celebrate Republic Day in the chawl, motivating others to participate.

A long mast arrives, arousing the curiosity of its inhabitants. The questions and arguments lead to an interesting split between the local’s telltale ignorance, enthusiasm and cynicism towards the celebrations of such occasions. The enthusiasm of the young children and the reluctance of the elders create an interesting face-to-face. Young people team up with Kaptan Chacha to humorously tackle the issue of social apathy towards national holidays and symbols.

New Year’s Eve. The dark basement of a building in a prosperous, republican country. They both live there; Immigrants who met by chance. In their own country, they wouldn’t even think of each other. We have strong hands that would never shirk an honest day’s work; the other has a head that has the ability to think. But their country doesn’t offer work for safe hands, nor the security to speak your mind – which brings these two opposing forces together in one room. What follows is the intractable and inextricable struggle between blue-collar workers and the intellect – with these two men in witty, impassioned and often revealing speech, representing two factions of society with no time for the other.
