The patrons of Gyaan Adab experienced a melancholy yet entertaining evening with FINAL DRAFT - this being veteran playwright Girish Joshi's Marathi play that had been translated into English by Jaideep Mujumdar. The play has had an extremely successful run on the Marathi theatre circuit, both experimental and commercial.
Produced by Maharashtra Cultural Centre and directed by Jaideep Mujumdar, Final Draft is a play that showcases the interactions and conversations between an unpredictable professor of script-writing and his shy student who is lagging behind in her coursework. In order to help her, the professor instructs her to write a story in the form of a special assignment.
What began innocuously as a class on scriptwriting eventually culminated with self-realisation and important life lessons. The end ultimately left one with a flood of thoughts along with a smile. For this was an intricately woven tale, with many underlying tones.
Cast: Jaideep Mujumdar, Laxmi Birajdar.
Duration: 90 minutes.
Produced by: Maharashtra Cultural Centre.
