4. Kommune story slam #15 – Bring your Best | 11th August | Cowrks, Powai

For our 15th Story Slam, we asked artists to bring us their best. Their best stories, their best verses, their best performances. We asked them to bring us all those pieces which they’d poured your heart and soul into. The ones which they're most proud of. The ones that were the hardest, but most rewarding, to write. We asked them to bring us their most memorable. Their most powerful. Their best.

5. The Unknown ( a play ) | 11th August | Akshara theatre, Delhi

Can the writer detach himself from his words, the artist from his vision, the musician from his song? This is the essence of this intensely dramatic, philosophical, yet fast-moving play. Set in a publishing house in any major large city of the world, where Ron and his colleagues celebrate the success of hotshot writer Sameer’s latest book, Ron’s anguished relationship with his wife Sally is offset by the sexual tension between him and the new woman in the office, the seductive Shauna. Amidst the simmering undercurrents of desire, hatred and jealousy, the players struggle to find resolution in their troubled lives, even as a shocking climax awaits them.

Written by Divyansh Vyas

Directed by R.S. Raghu

Cast: Neel Kamal, Amanpreet Kaur, Renuka R.S., Shivain Vaidyalingam and others members of the Akshara Repertory.

The Unknown is part of the Gopal Sharman Theatre Festival.
