Sure Thing – The play I acted after 7 years
We had a cultural evening for independence day.. here at IIMB.. We had talent shows from dance, drama and music troupes.. I got to chance to act in a play – Sure Thing..
Sure Thing is a short play by David Ives. It has 2 characters – Bill and Betty.. Bill is trying to “line maarofy” Betty.. and screwes up a number of times.. (A bell rings whenever things get screwed) Eventually Bill “connects” to Betty, after a lot of fight.. Its a hilarious play and brings out what typically goes wrong when I guy meets a girl and “tries” for her..
Note:The video is shaking a bit initially.. Swalpa Adjust Maadi 🙂 (Please adjust)
The last time I acted in a play was in School in 10th Standard.. Only thing in between was.. a very minor 10 seconds role in one movie spoof @ NITT.. So I am acting in a play after long time and throughly enjoyed the experience.. I always wondered how it feels like when some one comes out of these stage shows and say “yes! We have done it”.. I have seen many of those from distance.. But being a part of it.. and experiencing it first hand was awesome.. It was a special moment.. 🙂
This play was directed Saikat Banerjee (My Section Mate @ IIMB)… He is an amazing director.. The other crew members include Aditi (My Betty), Komolika & Ashish. Incase, you havent seen me before, I am they guy in formals.. wearing the tie.. with a “funky” hairstyle for the play. 🙂
Have Fun.. leave your comments about the play & my acting 🙂
