A Bangalore BITSian gang led by Okri (98A7) has started a theatre group, Version One Dot Oh (VODO)!  “Shadows in the Dark” a production of VODO was staged in Mumbai at the Mysore Association Auditorium in Matunga on 9th Feb 2007. “Shadows in the Dark” is an English translation of Sriranga’s renowned play “Kattale Belaku” written in the 1950s.  The play wonderfully depicts the need for theatre to re-invent new forms to keep the art and its need in society vibrant. Although there is no story with a beginning or a happy ending, the plot revolves around three men discussing a play and dropping scenes as impractical and irrelevant to daily life, while the very scenes happen around them.

VODO also staged “When the pythons followed the actor” on 10th Feb at the Rang Sharda Auditorium in Bandra, Mumbai. This play is an adaptation of Christopher Durang’s “An actors nightmare" and 3 sketches from Monty Python Flying Circus television series, strung together to produce a 70-minute rib tickling comedy." An Actor's Nightmare" is reflective of every actor's nightmare of ending up on stage in a performance completely clueless about the lines, the characters and the plot. The Actor's nightmare in Durang's work ends up as an illogical and disconnected series of episodes from other well-known plays. VODO chose to adapt 3 hilarious sketches. The experiment of sorts resulted in three theatrical sketches quite different from the original.
