Swatantra Theatre will be staging the popular play, Court Martial, in the city with a completely new cast

This Friday, catch a special show of the popular Hindi play, Court Martial. The play gives an insight into the methods of functioning of an army trial court, while exploring the rift between the upper and lower castes.

The play conveys the message that the army should be above social prejudices, and while doing so, presents some illuminating performances by the cast of the play.

Abhijeet Choudhary, who has directed the play, says Court Martial is one of the most celebrated plays in Hindi, and has been around for more than two decades. It was written by Swadesh Deepak in 1991. And yet, the play manages to impress every time.

“This is one of those plays which can be staged any number of times, but always gives a feel that it is new and has something new in it. The audience enjoys it a lot as a lot of people never get to see an army court martial, and while seeing this they feel it is real and get involved in it fully.”

The cast of the play is different from the previous editions and includes Aaditya Alankar, Prakhar Singh, Prashant Singh, Swapnil Gujar, Anurag Sharma, Prithvi Sancheti, Prashant Kumar, Nishchal Sharma, Rajesh Ranganath and Jitendragiri Swami.

On: October 10 and 11, 7.30 pm onwards
At: Amphitheatre, Sri Mahavir Jain Vidyalaya, next to BMCC, Agarkar Road.
Entry: Free
