Mostly about Measure For Measure
But things changed once the plot started developing. The accents started sounding ekdum apne jaisi, the language like sweet music- and the only reason was the amazing performance by the cast of the play. Everyone was so into the character that it was almost as if you were watching a real-life drama being played out in front of you. Angelo, the 'bad guy'- the puritan who is forced to surrender to his carnal desires, leading him on a self-destructive path; the nun whom Angelo is lusting after, who has to decide between her body and her brother's life; the brother who, out of sheer desperation to save his life, asks his sister to sleep with Angelo; and a host of other totally real characters brought to life by the vivid performances!
The play ended with a standing ovation of course, and while going back, we saw two of the lead actors in the play walking down to their hotel around a Km away, with school bags on their backs! Loverlllyyyy!!!
p.s. For those of you who have been following the development of my insomnia, some good news- have been able to catch around 5 hours sleep for the last two nights. Guess am on my way back to a normal life! Cheers!
