Adapted from the 1967 play by Israel Horovitz, this absurdist drama is still a perfect reflection of the world we live in. Standing behind a white line, five people fight for the first spot in the queue, and their attempts get more and more callous as the play proceeds. A cricket fanatic who feels hard work deserves it’s due, a Rahman fan who manipulates everyone with his rigmarole, a conniving female who uses her sexuality to lure the men out of line, her confused, germophobic husband, and a selfish elderly gentleman who looks out only for himself - each character, though different in their ways of thinking, have one goal which is to come first. So, who will win? Who will have the last laugh? Who will be at the front of the line?

MY Theatre Festival is our flagship theatre festival aimed at giving under 25 aficionados of the craft a bigger and better platform to showcase their talent.

It is now into its 6th year! And is also the only Youth Theatre festival to now be present in two cities – Chennai & Bangalore.

Jagriti

Jagriti is a Performance Arts space dedicated to Theatre, Music, Dance and Comedy. Founded in 2011 by Arundhati and Jagdish Raja, the space has hosted several productions from India and around the world. A 200-seat theatre, built around a full-thrust stage, it is fully equipped to cater to both artistes and audience. The main stage is designed for intimate performances, with adjoining spaces for informal lectures and gatherings, and an attached restaurant- 'The Fat Chef'. Jagriti is owned and operated by the not-for-profit ART Foundation, a registered charitable trust.

The Rooftop - above the main auditorium is an open-to-sky space with a staging area that can accommodate about 50 people. A raised and walled off platform can work as a perfect area for puppet theatre. The Rooftop has a restroom and a pantry. 

The Terrace - alongside the auditorium, the Terrace can accommodate about 20 people as an informal gathering area.

Lumbini - extending out from the foyer, Lumbini has a stage and an open-to-sky terraced space for about 80 people.
