Cringing, craving, bingeing, braving... you always have an opinion on what's hot and what's not in your city and we just love to hear it. Besides, there's no better place to satiate that itch to bitch!
Adapted from Moliere Alive! by Vijay Padaki, the play has a theatre company in Bangalore meeting in a Moliere theme party. The group cannot help seeing parallels between the plots in his plays and the situations in his own life. The group soon finds itself discovering the life of Moliere afresh in the unplanned exploration of his plays. Working backwards from Moliere’s death while performing a new play, the group takes excursions into six of his most loved plays to understand why he was the most admired and most loved dramatist of all time in France. He was not without enemies, of course, hated intensely by those whom he rubbed the wrong way, ridiculing them in his plays. Although denied a decent burial by the church when he died, his work live on!
