Drama Competition 2015

This year, the theme for the Drama Competition was ‘Psychological Thrillers’. Each house had to perform an original short play of fifteen minutes duration.

Cauvery House’s play ‘The devil is in the details’ was about a mentally depressed man who tries to kill himself but ends up in a coma. While in the coma he dreams about the perfect life, but the devil – his conscience – tempts him and finally takes his life.

‘Fortune favours the wicked’ the play staged by Godavari House, tells the story of an abusive husband whose wife becomes a murderer. The husband is sent to jail after the wife blames him for all her crimes. Finally it is revealed that the wife had wrongly framed her husband.

Narmada House enacted ‘The darkness felt’ and the play was about a daughter who was tricked by her mother into believing that she had killed her father. This causes her to have a dual personality and the realization of her true identity formulates the rest of the play.
