The Qadir Ali Baig Theatre Festival is back this year, and is being organized from 31st Oct to 7th Nov. The festival is conducted by the Qadir Ali Baig Theatre Foundation, which was established by Mohammed Ali Baig, in memory of his father Qadir Ali Baig, a doyen of Hindustani theatre.

The foundation was established in an attempt to revive the Indian theatre scene. On board are danseuse Vani Ganapathy, actresses Rohini Hattangadi, Suhasini Maniratnam and Urmila Matondkar, lyricist Javed Akhtar, and director M S Sathyu.

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

On 6th Nov '08, as part of the festival, Sohaila Kapur's play Ouch is being staged at Ravindra Bharathi. Ouch features Archana Singh, Jyotsna Sharma and actors from Hungry Hearts, an NGO that was founded by Kapur, Smita Bharti and Monica Bhasin to promote theatre and filmmaking.

The story revolves around three young women - Jasmine Junena alias Jojo, Poornima and Meenu - desiring television superstardom, who interact in a studio audition. Ouch is a comedy that takes pot-shots at reality-based television shows. Updated since it first opened to packed houses 2 months before Indian Idol hit television screens, it is one of Delhi's longest running and critically acclaimed English plays.

The event is being presented by Karvy, and APTDC and ICCR are associate sponsors. The event is supported by SBH & SBI, the official host is HICC, and Deccan Chronicle is the media associate.

Tickets are priced Rs. 100, Rs. 250 & Rs. 500, and are available at Shoe World (Patthargatti), ICCR (Ravindra Bharathi), Music World (Banjara Hills), Novotel (Hitech City), Sangeet Sagar (Paradise Circle), Walden (Begumpet), A A Hussain (Abids) and Ofen (Road No. 10, Banjara Hills).
