Ek Aur Dronacharya

This unsparing, hard-hitting play showcases ground realities of world through events in lives of two teachers across eras. One, the mythical master of archery and scriptures – Dronacharya and another – Arvind, an honest modern-day college professor. Divided by the eras and times, the two unite in the conundrums they face as the practicality hit their idealism hard.

The play is unforgiving in its portrayal of ever-existing conflicts between idealism and the reality; an individual against the system. The idealism, which needs to stand upright with its head held high, is repeatedly drawn into submission for human needs. Did ideals took a bashing from Kaurvas Gold in Mahabharata period? Will ideals genuflect to Rupees in modern world?

The IPTA group delivers yet another sterling performance in this play. Aanjjan and Akhilendra particularly are exemplary in the characters they portray. The play is tightly written. The costumes and stage set is done well. Especially the costumes of Mahabharata-era are very nicely done. A must-watch for the theatre goers who would enjoy a hard-hitting play with great performances!
