What Others Say: Five Grains Of Sugar

Posted on Sep 20th, 2009 by Shuchi in What Others Say, Just Theatre, Solo Acts

Quote from The Hindu (Bangalore) review of the play:

The exaggerated and magnified simplicity and humility of Rajkumar were driven home one too many times, making the one-act play tedious in the protagonist’s attempt to defend his life and its meaning.

The audience, however, were simply delighted — hanging onto every joke, lapping it up and bursting into peals of laughter at the slightest pretext, right till the end.

If the audience was delighted, then who was it that found the play tedious? The Hindu does not say.

I can’t find any more old newspaper reviews of this play. Maybe there’ll be a few after the Sep-09 run in Bangalore. I’ll return to update this section later, if so.
