“This play is full of life and all will enjoy it,” says director Amol Parashar. On the other hand, Internal Affairs is a comedy that takes the viewer into the lives of two youngsters who live and work in a big city.

“The story is led by two characters — Sid and Rhea. They are the quintessential young, enthusiastic and spirited colleagues caught in a comical situation.

Mumbai being a fascinating city, Friday nights at new work places are usually spent at pubs or lounges. On one such fateful night, situations bring Sid and Rhea close to each other, but they still get confused, hesitant, indecisive and everything else but happy,” says Adhaar Khurana, the director of the play.

On: July 29, 12 pm (Saraswati’s Way) and 7 pm (Internal Affairs)
At: Nehru Memorial Hall, 4, Near BJ Medical College Ground, Dr Ambedkar Road, Camp.
