You need to be either a Kannadiga or a significantly above average theater-lover to want to go to this. This is a "theater festival" spanning 2 days, but the plays are in Kannada.

A little bit about the people behind this. The Kannada Natya Ranga was founded in 1968 by a group of Kannadiga art-lovers based in Hyderabad. They initially concentrated on theater, but eventually moved on to include dance, music and folk art in their activity. They now do about 6 programs every year, though the focus is still on theater.

This event has 2 dramas on the 2 days. The 19th has Devayani, performed by artists of the association themselves. This is a mythological play originally written by Jnanpith awardee Handelkar, and was translated to Kannada by Inamdar. The story is quite popular in Indian mythology, and is about Devyani, the daughter of Sukracharya, the Guru of the Asuras.

The 20th has Kattale Belagu, a social play by Sriranga, and presented by a group from Karnataka called Galeyare Balaga. This is being sponsored by the Department of Kannada Culture, Karnataka.
