Drama Competition 2012

This year, practice sessions for the inter house drama competition started quite early. Each house presented one-act plays. Cauvery put up an edited version of ‘The Refund’ by Fritz Karinsky. It was about a man who goes back to his school demanding a retest because he thinks he didn’t learn anything at school and how his teachers outwit him so that they don’t have to refund his tuition fees. Godavari’s play, ‘My proud beauty’ was a melodrama – a play within a play, about an evil squire and his plan to force the beautiful daughter of a poor farmer to marry him. ‘The Bracelet’ enacted by Narmada was about an affluent woman who has her suspicions and believes only in that. Her bracelet goes missing and whether her suspicions hold good, forms the story. Sutlej’s play entitled ‘Headline’ by Norman Holland is a story about the shady underbelly of 1970’s Chicago.

At the end of the drama competition, the results surprised everyone as Cauvery, Godavari and Narmada placed first, while Sutlej came in second.

The results were as follows.

First: Cauvery, Godavari and Narmada
Second: Sutlej
Best Actor: Guneet Singh Chadha of Sutlej
Best Actress: Rochana Mohan of Sutlej
Best Director: Anjani Balu of Cauvery
