IN A CLASS OF THEIR OWN
Are you ready to be a part of The Craziest Acting Class in TOWN?
Maruti Suzuki, India’s leading car company and ZEE Theatre, a special offering from the stable of the leading global content company ZEE Entertainment Enterprises Ltd., have come together as Maruti Suzuki Zee Theatre to bring a series of exciting plays across the country. The series continues with Mumbai based ‘The Class Act’ a Silly Point Production set to be staged in New Delhi at Kamani Auditorium, Copernicus Marg on Saturday, 09th December at 7:00 PM.
The play is an English comedy that revolves around the chaotic activities that ensue when four stereo-typical students, a veteran Hindu theatre artist from Delhi who believes in the sanctity of theatre, a 50-year-old Parsi bachelor who lives with his father and loves his bike, a typical laid back Goan Christian lad and the protagonist, a clean shaven Muslim man, come together to learn acting under the supervision of an aristocratic stiff upper lipped teacher. The chaos further accentuates when a fifth character, a wannabe actress joins the class.
Day, Date: Saturday, 09th December
Venue: Kamani Auditorium, Copernicus Marg, New Dellhi
Title: The Class Act
Run time: 2 Hours 25 Mins
Meherzad Patel, Director on re-launching the play says, “In The Class Act – the actors make up 50% of the script with their input and dedication to the play – the special novel brand of humour comes from us being one big happy family of actors – that’s what defines Silly Point Production - I can’t write without them and they can’t do this kind of comedy without me – every single actor brings so much to the table and adds so much that I refuse to take writer credit - for the class act – alone.”
