Royston Abel/ Girish Karnad
Two good names in the area of theatre…I went to see “Flowers” yesterday at Ranga Shankara. Impressive, with Rajit Kapoor doing a great job of remembering, word-perfect, a monologue of more than 70 minutes….But I do have some reservations about having too-simple props and no relief at all…..it would have been better if the intensity had had some relief.
Also, I took the front row very happily, only to have the actor tower over me in the set and I had to crane my neck for all that time….nitpicking, I know, but the nit is there to be picked.
What do you think,
Will be going to see the Bengali plays, probably….
