Catch A Screened Play With CinePlay
Friday, 19 September 2014 16:21

What: Cineplay, video screenings of theatre performances, see their website here, Facebook page here

Why: So that awesome play came to town last week and you missed it? Join the club.

Bridging the gap between people who would like to make it to theatre performances and those who actually do is CinePlay, started by media and film experts, Subodh Maskara and Nandita Das. By shooting theatrical plays for video screenings across the country, and releasing slick trailers for each, CinePlay is attempting to break the limitations of geography, language and accessibility that come with the medium. Says Subodh, “It just simply started as a cost effective way to reach a global audience.”

When: Now. S(t)age advice, this.
