Romeo & Juliet - No Strings Attached

Written by Prashanth Nair

An original comedy that is built on the premise that we are all bound by strings that hold us back and let us free. A bunch of puppets(actors) come alive in an empty auditorium, after their show has been shut down, and just before they escape to live 'free' lives, decide to enact the play they've been built to perform - William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet. Only this time, they're doing it for no one but themselves.

What follows is an irreverent play that keeps going off on tangents but keeps coming back to the classical text whether the puppets want it that way or not. It concludes with the thought - are we free only because we think we are - no strings attached.

What makes it special?

Well quite a few things. Firstly, its our first full length original production. Secondly, its our take on a master piece by playwright Shakespeare. And lastly, this play is the winner of The Hindu Metroplus Playwright Award 2012.
