Concluding their share of theatre for the year, AAINA recently hosted two plays in the short span of a week—’Chacha Chaubey Ke Chashme Se’, a street play depicting the social evils that plague our country, and ‘In The Name Of Blood’ a crime drama inspired by the Capones. The enthralling performances of the actors and brilliant scripts of both the plays thoroughly delighted the audience.
Spotlight by AAINA Dramatics was held on 22nd September in the library auditorium. The sublime mixture of light entertainment and intense theatrics, kept the audience enraptured throughout the whole eight-play event.
Aaina Dramatics’ flagship production of the semester—Bade Miyaan Deewane was a success, leaving its audience in splits of laughter with its impressive comic timing, and the great acting.
On 6th April, ADA Dramatics organised a light-hearted comedy play, The Great Raja Master Drama Company, at Fortune Inn which entertained the audience and left them in splits.
ADA Dramatics’ annual production, Error 404: Love & Laughter Not Found, consisting of an English and a Hindi play, dealt with the absence of love in the lives of the characters in the play. The plays explored the search for happiness and love and how it could make one lose sight of reality.
“A madman’s joke. That’s just what makes it so deliciously macabre.”
AAINA Dramatics presented their main production of the semester, The Mousetrap, which impressed the audience with its perfectly arranged sets and exceptional acting.
