"Quixotic Wonderland" (Hindi) – Ranga Theatre, MUMBAI
Quixotic Wonderland combines two timeless classics - Cervantes` Don Quixote and Lewis Carroll`s Alice in Wonderland. In this exciting new story the Queen of Wonderland has started a reign of evil in alliance with Jabberwocky, the monster, while Alice and Don Quixote are destined to restore peace in Wonderland. This melange of two fantastical worlds gives rise to an extravaganza of colour, music and magic, which is a treat for children and adults alike.

“The Little Blue Planet” (non-verbal) – Katkatha Theatre, NEW DELHI
The little Blue Planet was commissioned by the Jindal Steel Works foundation as a part of their collaboration with the Climate Change Project-India. The show is about our Planet Earth who is our protagonist. Earth creates life and nurtures it. However the creatures belittle him by destroying one another, and polluting the environment. The play portrays the greediness of the human. The show has no spoken words and was created mainly for children and families.
“Two Blind Mice” (English) – Proscenium Productions, MUMBAI
The play is an adaptation of scene 1 of Samuel Beckett's "Waiting for Godot". Vladimir and Estragon wait under a tree for a person named Godot. While they wait, they sing, dance, talk, argue and play games, meet Pozzo and Lucky, who are passing through. The question is will Godot ever arrive? This tragi-comedy reflects the worldview of the 1950's and the philosophical vacuum that existed in the aftermath of World War 2. Beckett's renowned play is made fun and accessible to youngsters, who connect with its nonsensical topsy-turvy illogicality.
