We are excited to bring to our audiences Low Res – an experimental series of play readings.

A reading is an interesting way for theater enthusiasts to get together and explore a script without the bells and whistles of a full scale stage production. The play will be read out by actors pre-assigned to roles and this will be followed by a lively discussion about the story, characters and plot by all present.

We will host our first staged reading – Tara, by Mahesh Dattani – on Friday, August 10th at 7:30pm at our Belmont rehearsal studio. It is being directed by Kartic Bhargav.

There is very limited seating at our studio. To ensure you receive a spot, please RSVP as early as you can. Please RSVP to


An RSVP is required to attend. You will receive a confirmation along with details about the reading within 24-48 hours of signing up.

The event is not ticketed. Admission is free. Light refreshments will be available.

About the play

Tara and Chandan have always been close. They were, after all, born as conjoined twins. But a horrific revelation drives a wedge between the siblings, plunging Chandan into a cycle of guilt and blame from which he cannot escape. One of Mahesh Dattani's most popular works, Tara was also one of the first Indian plays in English to highlight the dangers of gender discrimination, and the insidious ways in which it operates in our society.
