After 24 weeks of intensive training with the finest theatre-makers in acting, speech, body movements and theatre lessons, Batch 2016-17 of The Drama School Mumbai is ready with its first performance for the masses in the form of “The Mule’s Foal.”
Based on the short novel by Fotini Epanomitis, and adapted by Australian playwright Alan Becher, The Mule’s Foal is a tale about love, longing, gossip and a village where nothing makes sense! Under the co-directorship of theatre-makers Puja Sarup and Sheena Khalid, the students of DSM showcase their theatre chops in this new Hindi translation by Neha Sharma. As a part of their curriculum, the students are given the opportunity to tour multiple cities with the production of the play.
“This is a show that is as much devised as it is scripted and in that sense the students have contributed so much to the creation of the show,” the directors said of this collaborative effort by the students of the DSM.
The show opened on the 4th and 5th of March at The Drama School Mumbai. Dates of the subsequent performances are given below. To book your tickets, do log on to bookmyshow.com.
