Rasik Arts are starting their Roundtables this new year on January 26th, 2009. Join us in the nice, warm, backroom of the Fifth Elementt with an historic, but universal play, by renowned actor, playwright, and director Girish Karnad. Tughlaq, by Girish Karnad, is set during the reign of Muhammad bin Tughlaq, a member of the Tughlaq dynasty and Sultan of Delhi from 1325 to 1351, and explores one of the timeless dilemmas known to humankind: the ideal versus the real, the aspiration for the divine versus the pull of human intrigue. There are many parts in this epic story of “Old” Delhi, so we hope many of you will grace us with your presence.
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. Anyone can read a part. Tea and coffee are provided by our sponsor MyBindi.com, your online destination for cool South Asian stuff! Roundtable – Monday, January 26 7pm 5th Elementt, 1033 Bay St. (South of Bloor – on the East side, corner of Irwin & Bay – in between Charles St. and Wellesley)
Script: Tughlaq by Girish Karnad
No admission charge.
