Piyaa Behrupiyaa in Bangalore!

piya

What happens when Twelfth Night by William Shakespeare is translated as Piyaa Behrupiyaa in Hindi by Amitosh Nagpal? Magic.
Directed by Atul Kumar, this acclaimed play now comes to Bengaluru.

Synopsis

In the household of Olivia, two campaigns are being quietly waged – one by the lovesick lord Orsino against the heart of the indifferent Olivia; the other by an alliance of servants and hangers-on against the high-handedness of her steward, the pompous Malvolio. When Orsino engages the cross-dressed Viola to plead with Olivia on his behalf, a bittersweet chain of events follows. Filled with a cast of unforgettable characters, Twelfth Night combines cruelty with high comedy and the pangs of unrequited love with some of the subtlest poetry and most exquisite songs Shakespeare
ever wrote.

About the director:

His education in French Language & Literature at JNU, Delhi was followed by a prolonged basic training in Kathakali and Kalaripayattu in Kerala for over three years as well as a stint with the master of visual theatre- Philippe Genty in France. Atul Kumar has also worked with Sacramento Theatre Company in the USA. He founded The Company Theatre in 1993 and has directed several
experimental plays that have won wide acclaim in India and abroad.
