Saturday January 13, 2018, 7.00 p.m. at the Bhavan

Lady Anandi by Anuja Ghosalkar

'Lady F' is haunted by the ghost of her great grandfather - a female impersonator in late 19th c. Marathi theatre - every time she goes on stage. How do we tell stories from our past without evidence? Does fiction best fill in the gaps of history?

Lady Anandi by Anuja Ghosalkar is a documentary theatre performance, a first of its kind in India. The play focusses on the role of personal history in making a theatre piece and was first showcased as a work-in-progress at Gender Bender 2015, before going on to becoming a full-fledged highly acclaimed performance.

Tickets: Rs. 200 available at the venue/bookmyshow.
Limited seating. Don't miss out one of the last performances!
