Seagrams 100 Piper is presenting an English play The Blue Mug, at the Shilpakala Vedika auditorium. The play will be stage on 2 days - 7:30pm on 27th February and 6pm on 28th February.
It is directed by Atul Kumar, and has Rajat Kapoor, Konkana Sen Sharma, Vinay Pathak, Ranvir Shorey, Sheeba Chadha and Manish Bharadwaj in its cast.
In this production, inspired by Oliver Sacks's essay, 'The Man who Mistook his Wife for a Hat', four actors struggle to construct themselves on the basis of what they remember, bringing up all those moments, both significant and irrelevant, which they salvage from the abyss of forgetting. They present themselves as they are, trying to sift truth from the fiction of their pasts.
Oliver Sacks's essay recounts the case histories of patients lost in the bizarre, apparently inescapable world of neurological disorders: people who are afflicted with perceptual and intellectual aberrations, severe memory loss, or those who have been dismissed as retarded, yet are very gifted.
Tickets are priced at Rs. 500 & Rs. 300 per head. Please contact the venue at 2311-2704 for further details.
