Love Hate Love [1.5]

Sure Thing-PlayOrange Reason brings you two adorable and hilarious one act plays in their series of Love Hate Love:
The Bear:
The absurdity in the fickle nature of human being would never stop creating the most hilarious situations. Something similar happens when the boorish Gregory Smirnov, who after repeated bitter experiences in love has sworn not to love ever, meets Elena Popova, who has vowed to be true to her dead husband’s memories forever. Sparks are bound to fly, pistols are bound to be drawn (literally), but how would it end?
Sure Thing:
A short play about a chance meeting between a man and a woman in a restaurant. The play shows how they pave through the minefield of conflicting interests, perceptions, likes, dislikes, political affiliations, nationality, and origins with the help of a bell that allows them to start over the conversation each time the romance crashes and burns.
Directed by: Sumedh Sarojini
Where: Nehru Memorial Hall
Time: 09:30 pm
Price: Entry Pass for 01 (Rs. 250) & Entry Pass for 02 (Rs. 200)
