Haaave you met the director?

Bhargav Ramakrishnan, or ‘Baggy’ as he is known to us is an engineer from SVCE, a former employee at evam, an entrepreneur who launched a Merchandising and Cute Gift creating company called ‘Muchos’ with evam, and has now directed ’39 Steps’ while waiting to join a B-School so he can learn more to feed his wildly creative and entrepreneurial spirit. This is what he has to say about ’39 Steps’ and what it was like to direct it.

“A small theatre company one day decides to adapt Alfred Hitchcock’s ‘The 39 Steps’ to stage. Except there are only four actors and they don’t have much in terms of sets and properties. But it doesn’t stop them, they decide to take it scene to scene and we watch them try and put the show together, struggling, bungling and enjoying themselves all along the way. The play is a comic tribute to Hitchcock himself and his spy thriller ‘The 39 steps.’ We try to stay true to the story while we adapt the characters and scenes to suit the grammar of the play. It’s a visual comic treat, for it hooks the audience, creating incomplete and suggestive trains, cars, hotels, moors and what not out of thin air and leaving it to the audiences’ imaginations to fill in the blanks. Come and you’ll catch 4 actors, some trunks and a window frame play a hundred and forty characters on stage.”
That decides it. This play is going to be mind-blowing! :D
