David Scott – One Night Only

I have just sat listening to a most engaging, informal, funny, observant, David Scott talk us through a mosaic of his brushes with life, living, family, experiences for 100 minutes. It flashed past in a trice.
What we need to applaud, not only here in Bangalore, India but around the world, is how a performer in his first time on stage, indeed,  his maiden performance to a ticket-paying audience had them transfixed and gently wafted them from an OBGYN OT to a fish and chip shop in Glasgow, to a Cisco campus and through the vicissitudes of this mandated journey that we all take.
One must note his candour, his honesty and, indeed, his courage and that of his family Claudia, son, Callum and Daughter Matilda all regular visitors to Jagriti seated in the audience, to bare it all with a quiet, no fanfare retelling of what has been noteworthy in David’s life, especially the last eight years spent in India. That he did this at Jagriti is feather in our cap. He must do it again and he will, I am sure.

We're a night away from opening Alipha and here's our director and her cast(madcaps, the lot of them) after their last tech run! Come by tomorrow at 8pm and share opening night with the cast, director and the lovely playwright, Poile Sengupta. Tickets on BookMyShow
Alipha tells the parallel stories of a social activist and a politician in small town India. In the writing of the play, there was a need for careful construction so that the two narratives dovetailed and yet each storyline was independently carried forward. The girl and the man- they remain nameless- do not ever meet on stage, their acting areas, and their worlds, remain explicitly demarcated and exclusively their own. . Opening this weekend and on for 13 shows. . Directed by @arundhatiraja Featuring @anirudhacharya44 and @kavya_09 . Lighting design: @rebecca.spurgeon Photo credit: @rs2802 . Tickets on BookMyShow . . . . #theatre #indiantheatre #stage #theatrelife #stagelife #theatrekid #bangalorediaries #bangalore #bangaloretheatre #whitefield
