Product Description
India Class Play
Cast of 30 - easily adaptable up or down
This cast (should that be caste?!) is anything but equal with the appearance of three gods - two with 4 arms and the other with 4 heads - which one is the narrator supposed to address?
Just one of the many problems facing our narrator - the main one being sheer volume of music, colour, joy and .. well everything that makes India such a vibrant country!
Duration - minimum 10 minutes reading time - this, as explained in Production Notes, could be increased to 30 minutes plus.
One of a collection of Indian scripts:
• Divali Assembly and the Story of Rama & Sita (as a play within a play - a little like Midsummer Nights Dream!)
• Scripts on Gandhi and on the Indus Valley Civilisation – all available off
Sample Text:
Music 2
(Shiva dances across ‘the stage’)
(Narrator tries to stop him but is confused by the number of arms – four)
Narrator: Er, em, excuse me … but who are you and what are you doing?
Shiva: What am I doing? Isn’t it obvious? I’m dancing, of course!
Narrator: Well, I think we can all see that. But who are you?
Shiva: (Exploding) Who am I? Who am I?
Narrator: Well, if you put it like that – yes, who are you?
(Whole cast gasps in horror)
(Child 7 goes over to Narrator)
Child 7: (Aside) Surely you know who this is?
Narrator: (Irritably) Well, do you really think I’d be asking if I did?
Child 7: It’s Shiva – the Destroyer!
(Narrator gasps)
Narrator: Oh no! Not that god with the power of life and death?
Child 7: That’s the one!
Narrator: (To Shiva) Oh I am most dreadfully sorry! I had no idea that it was you, Shiva!
Shiva: Oh I’ll forgive you! I guess I do look (waving arms around) pretty ‘armless!
Narrator: Well, I wouldn’t say that! I mean, I think I counted … four arms?
Shiva: Oh that’s nothing! When you compare it with number of names I have!
Narrator: And they are? (Holds up fingers to start counting on) Now, let’s see. Starting with Shiva …
Shiva: Er, I don’t think we have time to run through the others – there are over one thousand of them!
Narrator: Oh, how very confusing! Can I suggest we stick with Shiva for now?
Shiva: That’s just fine with me! Course, I’ll also answer to Lord of the Dance, if you prefer?
Narrator: Yes, I do prefer that to your other title
Shiva: You mean, the Destroyer?
(Whole cast gasps and recoils in horror)
Narrator: Hmm. I don’t think that one’s a very popular choice around here!
