The Abhinaya National Theatre Monthly magazine is organising the 2nd Abhinaya National Theatre Festival 2007 from 9th to 12th August, at the Ravindra Bharathi. Six stage plays and four street plays from all over the country will be staged during the 4-day festival.

A Telugu play Ye Velugulaki Prasthanam on 9th August; a Telugu street play Tadabu Lakadana Jibu Jibu and a Hindi/English play Numbers In The Dark on 10th August; an English play The Island, a Telugu street play Dakshinayanam and a Kannada play Caucasian Chalk Circle on 11th August; and a Tamil play Pavan Kunju, a Tamil street play Payanam and a Manipuri play Acheekpagi Khongjel on 12th August, will be staged.

Today, the second day, The Company Theatre And Evam Youth Forum Production of Mumbai will stage a Hindi/English play Numbers In The Dark, directed by Atul Kumar. The play tries to explore the universal questions: What is our real truth? What is our real identity? Is there one at all? Are we just numbers in the dark?

Numbers In The Dark is a theatrical creation which aims to explore the realm of individual truth as shaped by our collective memory and the loss of identity. The broken images within and outside of the system make us pose the questions: Which truth does on trust? And whose truth?

The play found its direction stimulated by characters in Harold Pinter's "Mountain Language" that echo the marginalization within our own system, and every character takes a broken peice from Italo Calvino's mirror to form a whole. Pinter's speech for President Bush in his Nobel acceptance speech strikes a chord of connect to the moral policing and authoritarian procedures that we as a nation are today being subjected to.

Hyder Ali, Namit Das, Naren Chandavarkar, Gulshan Devaiah, Suhaas Ahuja and Rachel D'Souza play the characters.

Abhinaya National Theatre Monthly was founded in the 2004 by Gadde Srinivas, a theater artiste and a die-hard lover of theater. Srinivas holds a diploma in theater arts. Quitting his lucrative profession in Telugu movies, he started Abhinaya, a first-of-its-kind magazine in India dedicated exclusively to theater. He organises many events throughout the year, like the State Theatre Festival in Guntur, and Padya Nataka Festival and Nataka Rachana Poteelu in Hyderabad.
