THE MADRAS PLAYERS…..and the journey to TRINITY
Founded in 1955, The Madras Players is the oldest English theatre Company in India. Having performed the works of playwrights from India and abroad, the group has about 300 productions to its credit. The Madras Players have been among the pioneers in showcasing Indian writing on stage, in translation, adaptation or original. Starting with the plays of Badal Sircar, Mohan Rakesh, Vijay Tendulkar and Girish Karnad in the 70’s, we have gone on to celebrate the works of several prominent South based writers…Kalki Krishnamurthi, R.K. Narayan, Indira Parthasarathi, Sivasankari, Komal Swaminathan, R. Chudamani among others.
It is in keeping with this spirit of new discovery that The Madras Players offer their latest production, ‘TRINITY’. It is based on the sensitive stories of Seetha Ravi (published in Kalki) on Carnatic music’s legendary composers, Saint Thyagaraja, Muthuswami Dikshitar and Shyama Sastri. Translated by Prabha Sridevan from the Tamil (in The Hindu), these stories are woven into one seamless fabric, dramatized and directed by P.C.Ramakrishna.
By a wonderful coincidence, not only were all three born the temple town of Tiruvarur in the mid-18th Century, but lived AT THE SAME TIME in and around Thanjavur, giving magnificent compositions to the world.
Organizer of The TrinityThe Madras Players is an Indian amateur theatre group and is the oldest English-language theatre group in Chennai, India. The Madras Players have staged over 240 theatre productions over the span of more than fifty years.
