The Dramatic Circle Of Hyderabad is presenting Alan Bennett's hilarious hit Habeas Corpus, on 16th May, at the Ravindra Bharathi auditorium. This well-known British comedy is being directed by Pranava Singhal, and has Vijay Marur as Dr. Arthur Wicksteed, Aarti Phatarphekar as Muriel Wicksteed, Kamal Kasturi as Dennis Wicksteed, Sampada Harkara as Constance Wicksteed, Diksha Marur as Mrs. Swabb, Jayant Dwarakanath as Canon Throbbing, Madhu Swaminath as Lady Rumpers, Simran Shinh as Felicity Rumpers, Anuj Gurwara as Mr. Shanks, B S Prakash as Sir Percy Shorter and Kamal Kasturi as Mr. Purdue.

Habeas Corpus concerns the aging Dr. Arthur Wicksteed and his pursuit of a nubile patient, Felicity Rumpers. Wicksteed's wife, Muriel, is, in turn, lusting after the charming head of the BMA, Sir Percy Shorter, who, as well as being Wicksteed's old rival, turns out to be Felicity's father - the result of an under-the-table liaison during an air-raid with Lady Rumpers, her mother. Meanwhile, Wicksteed's spinster sister Connie, ashamed of her flat-chestedness, has schemes of her own. The 'chorus' is provided by the lower-class housekeeper Mrs. Swabb.
