Rasaranjani is organizing Ammoru, an idealogical Telugu play, at Sri Thyagaraya Gana Sabha on 20th & 21st June, as part of its monthly calendar. The play is written by Gollapati Nageshwar Rao, directed by Ch Laxmana Swami, and presented by the BDL Cultural Committee. The characters in the play are portrayed by P Nageshwar Rao, S Nagaraju, G Raja Rao, A K Sridevi, Mounika, Subhadra & others.

The play deals with the superstitions that exist in villages, and tries to convey the message that superstition is far more than plain belief. The story revolves around a shrewd farmer who has a plot beside a lake. The farmer utilises the water in the lake to the maximum possible extent, and doesn't let anybody else use it, in the name of Vaastu. Meanwhile, a village development engineer visits the village and discards all myth surrounding the lake, thereby allowing everybody to use the water.

The anguished farmer tries his best to bribe the engineer, but he doesn't relent to the farmer's wishes. Consequently, the farmer along with a lady friend stages an act, in which he proclaims that the local diety has entered the lady's body, and nobody except the farmer can control her body. The engineer tries in vain to convince the villagers about the hoax. Then as luck would have it, an educated young lady happens to visit the village as part of her project work. This lady manages to educate the villagers by removing the ill-beliefs and superstitions from their mind, and thereby unites everyone.

Rasaranjini was established in March 1993, with a staging of the famous play Kanya Sulkam. During these 15 years since its inception, it has staged about 1,900 plays. It stages a play every month at Sri Thyagaraya Gana Sabha, to promote this neglected form.

The association not only stages its own productions, it also gets groups from outside and pays for their staging. It also trains in acting and mime. K V Ramana, IAS, is its president. Most of the members are renowned theater personalities.

The entry to the play is by tickets of Rs. 10 only, available at the venue. Please contact M Kameshwara Rao at 98661-87501 for further details.
