To commemorate the death anniversary of theatre personality Qadir Ali Baig, the Qadir Ali Baig Theatre Foundation is presenting 2 plays in Hindi - Luna & Roop Aroop - on 3rd June, at the Ravindra Bharathi auditorium. Both the plays have been directed by Tripurari Sharma.

Luna is about a young girl married against her desire, to an aged king. The play is set in the hills using the imagery of the region, and uses a free style incorporating music and verses. An embodiment of pain, a victim and a survivor at the same time, Luna is a multi coloured and multi faceted character from the famous legend performed in popular forms of North India like Nautanki and Khayal. She is the antithesis of virtue.

Roop Aroop is about men who took up the female persona in their profession, from generation to generation. However, towards the middle of the previous century, women set foot on stage. The tussle between the male accomplished actor and the aspiring female actress could not have been an easy one. 2 young actors explore human dimensions of this phenomenon.

The Qadir Ali Baig Theatre Foundation was founded by Mohammed Ali Baig, in memory of his late father Qadir Ali Baig, who was a doyen of Hindustani theater. It was established in an attempt at revival of theater, which had lost its sheen in India. The foundation has on board danseuse Vani Ganapathy, artistes Rohini Hattangadi, Suhasini Maniratnam and Urmila Matondkar, lyricist Javed Akhtar and director M S Sathyu.

The foundation not only stages plays regularly every month, but also imparts basic training in all aspects of theater, to nurture young talent. Begum Razia Qadir Ali Baig, wife of Qadir Ali, is the Chairperson of the foundation, while Sathyu is the National Director and Mohammad Ali is the President.

Entry tickets are priced at Rs. 500, Rs. 300 & Rs. 100 per head, and can be booked online at or can be delivered home by calling 98800-36611.
