Written and directed by Ram Ganesh Kamatham, a precocious young playwright and rising star of the Indian theatre scene, this play is loosely based on two of the stories in the Vetalapancavimshati – more popularly known as Vikram and Vetal. It’s toured the Indian metros so far and is now coming back to Bangalore for its 10th show:
Saturday 3rd (7:30pm) and Sunday 4th May (3:30 & 7:30pm)
at Nani Arena, Centre for Film and Drama
5th Floor, Sona Towers, 71, Millers Road, Bangalore
