Today we are talking about two plays that bring history back into the confines of an auditorium, but with a twist.

Our first play is Ghalib In New Delhi , which shows how a Ghalib, reborn in New Delhi, faces an identity crisis, can’t acquire his own haveli, dons jeans and t-shirts and loves the Delhi Metro.

After that we have Sukhmani Kohli, director of the play Romeo, Juliet and 7 Clowns. Sukhmani tells us about her love for clowning, and how does a clown perceive the famous Romeo and Juliet story.

You can catch the play Ghalib In New Delhi on 18 May, at the Shri Ram Centre For Art & Culture at 7.30 pm. And if you looking for some clowning there’s Romeo, Juliet and 7 Clowns at the India International Centre on 29 May at 6.30 pm. For more information, you can check out the auditoriums’ respective websites.

If you happen to see the plays, share your reviews with us at feedback@livemint.com.
