THE ENIGMA OF BEING

How do we become what we are? And what is it that governs our understanding of all there is?

Sandeep Girish Bhatnagar

THE SERIOUSNESS OF PLAY

The arts are essential; theatre is essential, and its business is part of human civilization's lifeblood. As a society we need to remember this or we risk losing our humanity!
