About The Play:
The President Is Coming is a popular play which premiered at the Royal Court/Rage Theatre Festival in Mumbai in January 2006. The play, written by Anuvab Pal, marks Kapur's debut as a director in the film version.
In 2006, George W. Bush, President of the United States, visited India. In addition to the many diplomatic and political things on the agenda was a rather unique event — a meeting with the young faces responsible for shaping "The New India". The six contestants are Maya Roy India's best young Writer, Ajay Karlekar India's best young Social Activist, Archana Kapoor India's best young Indian Entrepreneur, Rohit Seth Call Center Accent Trainer, Kapil Dev Dholakia India's best young Stock Investor, Ramesh S Software Engineer.
They have to undergo bizarre tests and activities to top the list. In the end only two are left Kapil and Maya. Kapil is caught cheating in the final round and Maya is selected. But with bizarre turn of events she is not the one who shakes the hand.
Crea-Shakthi, into its 3rd year operations brings back the play that won them several accolades. Performed as part of MY Theatre Festival Season II, The president is Coming has been revived with a mix of old & new cast & crew members. The play promises to be a laugh riot, just like last time!
