Qadir Ali Baig Theater Festival, which, in a way, is a celebration of world class theater event, is back again with yet another year to entertain its patrons with the best of plays from across the world. Just as every other year in the past, the Qadir Ali Baig Theater Festival would take place at multiple venues and would be a week-long affair.
With the choicest of plays from across the globe and the best of the talents from the industry, these plays would surely captivate any drama and theater enthusiast.
The One And Only Nana at Salar Jung Museum is one such play, which is worth the watch, would take place from 6 pm to 7 pm on November 13, 2014. Directed by Mohan Agashe, The One And Only Nana is based on the Indian classic ‘Ghasiram Kotwal’s’ character, where Nana takes a trip into the present with meaningful and humorous anecdotes.
The play would be in English and would be performed by none other than Mohan Agashe who is fondly known as Nana Phadnavis. Ghashiram Kotwal goes down in the history of Indian theatre as one of its greatest plays for its honest portrayal of how power corrupts men, leading them to devalue human rights.
