About the Event

Synopsis:

A group of clowns are trying to put up Shakespeare's 'As You Like It'. The director of the troupe is distressed because he neither likes the play (which he says, is not a comedy – just two laughs and a death away from tragedy), nor is he very fond of the inept clowns who insist on hamming. Plus, they don't have a rehearsal space anymore. They decide to move to the forest.

As if things were not bad enough, the director has a moment of epiphany. 'Shakespeare made Rosalind Ganymede. What an underachiever. I will make all the men play women, and all the women play men.', he says.

What follows is a recipe for a perfect disaster.
