October Roundtable on Monday – October 27 at 7pm in the back room of the 5th Elementt (1033 Bay St.). Rafta, Rafta by Ayub Khan-din is about the trials and tribulations of a newlywed couple trying to consummate their marriage in the midst of a meddlesome extended family. The script is based on “All in Good Time” by Bill Naughton and won the Olivier award in London for the best comedy of 2007. It was most recently produced in NYC this spring (And if you remember Sean Tagore from “Nagamandala” – he was in it, too! You can read a review of that production at http://theater2.nytimes.com/2008/05/09/theater/reviews/09raft.html)
Ayub Khan-din has also written “East is East.”
A ROUNDTABLE is an informal gathering where Rasik Arts provides script copies, and we sit around the table in the back of the 5th Elementt reading the play out loud, followed by a discussion. This year, Artist-in-Residence Janice Goveas is moderating. It’s free. Anyone can read a part. Tea and coffee are provided by MyBindi.
