Leo Burnettâs Brand Planner, Spandhan Mishra calls to experience an evening of full theatrical entertainment by Last Minute Productions, presenting âPast Forwardâ, a double bill of two plays back to back on one evening. Scripted, directed and enacted by this young Burnetter, the plays would be performed at Godrej Dance Academy, NCPA, Mumbai on June 25 and 26, 7:00 pm onwards.
The opening play, Douglas Hillâs Roulette, is a supernatural romantic comedy about a young couple, on the verge of divorce, who find themselves stuck in a never-ending road trip from Bombay to Goa. Directed by Spandan Mishra, the play is a contemporary âin the bedroomâ peek into the lives of a married couple who seem so wrong together, itâs almost right that they constantly fight. Interestingly, the cast consists of just two actors, Mishra himself and his wife Sohini. âItâs quite challenging to play a couple about to divorce, when weâve gotten married about 4 months agoâ says Spandhan Mishra, but his wife admits thatâs exactly why the play works, âIâm hoping our chemistry off-stage culminates on-stage as well.â
The second play, Scarborough Fair is an original experimental written and directed by newcomer Yudhishthir Agrawal. Set to the music of Simon and Garfunkel, this is the coming of age story of a young man has to choose between his two first loves â his girl and his writing. Yudhisthir actually wrote the play while he was at Cornell University doing an MBA, âIâll never forget walking into theatre class at Cornell wearing a business suit, and I guess thatâs the dilemma in my play as well.â says Yudhishthir. With a cast full of eclectic working professionals from media, advertising, films, marketing and dance, Scarborough Fair promises to be a never-seen-before perspective at the classic coming of age story of youngsters today.
