Naatak presents Hindi play K.K

Submitted By Rajiv Nema

Naatak presents its 32nd production Sujit Saraf's K.K., a play in Hindi directed by Sujit Saraf and produced by Asheesh Divetia. K.K., part dreamer and part bumbling idiot, finds his way through Connaught Place, Delhi passing fruit vendors, card players, booksellers, security guards, shoppers, shopkeepers, film goers, gangsters and gold smugglers. This is the hilarious story of how each takes something from K.K., and how he avenges himself.

There are hundreds of characters in the play but a single actor who walks through imaginary crowds. The set is fluid, changing continuously on wheels even as K.K. moves through it. The play is performed by playwright Sujit Saraf, whose plays have been staged all over the US and India, at the National School of Drama in Delhi, Nandikar's festival in Kolkata, and the Bhartendu Natya Utsav featuring "the best plays staged in Delhi in 2007."

Naatak is a San Francisco Bay Area-based theater group dedicated to producing creative and thought-provoking plays. Children under 8 will not be admitted. Flash photography is not allowed.
