Theatre

Laugh away

THE SKETCHES ARE Cheeky and attention grabbing  

The play “Trivial Disasters”, comprising eight comic sketches, has left Bangaloreans in splits earlier, and this month it promises to leave many more laughs in its wake. The comic sketches range between a duration of two and 12 minutes and provide a bizarre spin on ordinary situations. The comic sketches include “The Proposal”, “Interview with Murugesh Kumar”, “The Electric Kettle”, “Road Safety”, “Coming Out”, “Kidnap” and “That Place”. This time “Trivial Disasters” is being performed in restaurants and pubs across the city.

The process of writing “Trivial Disasters” turned out to be fun for Ajay Krishnan. “I have been interested in the short sketches form for a while. Ideas popped into my head and different kinds of humour, from dark to laugh-out-loud lines, emerged.”

Needless to say, humour is Ajay's forte, and as he explains, “it is an outlet for the disturbing thoughts that happen in my head. It was never my intention to write about any serious issues. It really depends on what you wear while writing a play. For me, getting the humour out was important.”

The theatre group under which “Trivial Disasters” is being staged has a cheeky name that grabs one's attention — Harami Theatre. Ajay agrees and “Yes, you can see it like that.” “Trivial Disasters” has appealed to every kind of audience.

It was staged at the literary festival Lekhana and drew quite a crowd.

The cast includes Rebecca Spurgeon, Vinod Ravindran and Arjun Shankar. It will be performed on the following days. On April 13 at 8.30 p.m. at Herbs & Spice, Indiranagar, on April 15 at 8.30 p.m. at Turquoise, Koramangala, on April 22 at 1 p.m. at Habanero, Whitefield and on April 29 at 8.30 p.m. at Bacchus, St. Marks' Road.
