Four short plays based on kitchen tales; by Shraddha

Shraddha will stage ‘Nam Samayalarayil’ – 4 short plays happening amidst food and the kitchen. The pays are titled ‘Nithya’, ‘Meenu engira Meenakshi Ammal’, The Haunted Kitchen’ and ‘Suda! Suda!’.

On Mar 24 and 25, 6.45 p.m. At Narada Gana Sabha.

Nithya is a play that exhibits the daily morning chaos that is attached to all nuclear family these days.

A modern day woman in her twenties faces the seemingly biggest challenge of her life yet – learning to make a perfect “special” dish. Does she accept the challenge? – this is the crux of Meenu Engira Meenakshi Ammal

The Haunted Kitchen – The story revolves around the kitchen -it is not a place to tie the womenfolk, neither the home-maker nor the working woman.

Kitchen is essentially for anyone who loves to cook by choice and is not just limited to women. “Suda! Suda!” blends the essence of gender neutrality and the love of cooking.
