The Hindu is organising the 6th edition of The Hindu Metro Plus Theatre Fest from 15th to 18th December at the Ravindra Bharathi auditorium. A total of 4 plays will be staged everyday at 7:30 pm during the 4-day festival. As part of this fest, Swami and Friends will be staged on the third and penultimate day.

The first novel of R K Narayan to gain international fame was Swami and Friends, the story of a young lad named Swami and his escapades with his two close friends, Rajam and Mani. More than anything else, it is a story of friendship and camaraderie.

Set in late pre-Independence India in the fictitious town of Malgudi, the novel has delighted both the old and the young with its characterisation, and sense of humour. The play is conceived as a seamless narrative, faithful to the novel, but adapted and directed with a fresh perspective. It promises to be a delight for Narayan fans and Narayan novices alike.

The play is in English, and is written by R K Narayan, and directed by Aruna Ganesh Ram. It is being staged by The Madras Players from Chennai, and is of 100 minutes in duration.

Started in 2005, The Hindu Metro Plus Theatre Fest is one of the most eagerly awaited theatre events every year. It starts in Chennai, and moves to other south-Indian cities. This year, it kickstarted in Chennai on 8th August with 8 plays staged over 7 days, followed by Hyderabad, Bangalore and Coimbatore.

Entry is by daily passes of Rs. 500, Rs. 300 and Rs. 200. Student passes cost Rs. 100 per head, but entry is permitted only on production of college ID cards. Season passes of Rs. 1,500 and Rs. 900 are also available, which are valid for all the 4 days. These passes can be obtained at the Hindu office in Begumpet.
