Gundayana – Kannada Play

December 19, 2016

Kannada Play
by Kriyative Theatre, Bengaluru

PlayWright: Na. Kasturi and Lakshmi Chandrashekhar
Director: Joseph

Based on the novel ‘Chakradrushti’ written by well-known Kannada humourist Na.Kasturi, ‘Gundayana’ is a unique comedy in which the protagonist himself never appears on stage, but is spoken about by ten different characters, who are all delightful caricatures of people we see around us all the time. Among these characters are Gundappa’s mother, wife, neighbour, boss, mentor, three of his friends, a milk-vendor and the narrator. These ten characters are played by just two actors, Sundar and Laxmi Chandrashekar.

While Na.Kasturi’s language, full of pun and wit, tickles your funny bones, the absurd caricatures he creates keep you grinning and guffawing throughout the play. Gundayana has been adapted for the stage by Laxmi Chandrashekar and is directed by Joseph, a Ninasam graduate who has made waves in theatre circles with his innovative productions. With H. N. Bhaskar, a violinist of international repute, playing Gajanana Naik’s tunes, the play offers an extraordinary fusion of various sorts. Added to this are Muddanna Shirahatti’s magical lighting and Ramakrishna Kannarapadi’s skillful make-up which make ‘Gundayana’ a rare treat.
