The Hindu MetroPlus is organising a theater festival from 10th to 13th October, at the Ravindra Bharathi auditorium. Four reputed English plays from various parts of the country will be staged during the 4-day festival. Today, the second day, Five Point Someone is being enacted by The Madras Players from Chennai. The play has been written and directed by Nikhila Kesavan.

An adaptation of Chetan Bhagat's bestseller 'Five Point Someone', this is the story of three underperformers at IIT — Hari Kumar, Alok Gupta and Ryan Oberoi. How does one cope with being a five-pointer, after having topped through school and slogged one's way into one of the best colleges in the country? What happens to friendship and love in an environment of relative grading? Can fun and creativity co-exist with tests and assignments?

It is funny and dark, and about "what not to do at IIT". One of the most successful English plays to emerge out of Chennai, Five Point Someone has been staged to packed houses in the city.

Launched in Chennai in 2005, The MetroPlus Theatre Festival has become a big success, growing in ambition and in maturity with every passing year. This August, the Chennai event comprised 12 plays – 4 of them from abroad. The highly encouraging response in Chennai has led to the festival debuting in Hyderabad, another city with a large discerning and appreciative audience for the arts.

The Hyderabad event is made up of four plays – all of which are being staged at the Ravindra Bharati - Love Letters by Rage (Mumbai), Five Point Someone by The Madras Players (Chennai), Butter And Mashed Banana by Harami Theatre (Bangalore) and Amadeus by Boardwalkers (Chennai).

The entry is by tickets of Rs. 300, Rs. 200 and Rs. 100 per head, and season passes are available for Rs. 900 and Rs. 600 per head. Please contact The Hindu at 2341-7777 for further details.
