Natya Bharati brings two great plays to Washington, DC, area to kick start the summer season

‘Four Walls’ and ‘Drushti’ will be staged at the Olney Theater Center on May 12.

On May 12th, Natya Bharati will be presenting two powerful plays entitled Four Walls and Drushti, which will be staged at the Historic Stage at the Olney Theater Center at 4:30 PM.

Directed by Sanjay Shetye, Drushti stars Ashutosh Hadap and Madhuwanti Bhatt and promises to be a powerful watch. Drushti tells the tale of Ria who is forced by her parents to visit a stranger, Abhay, to learn from him. It becomes abundantly clear that it will be a tough road ahead of learning and adapting to each other. With unique challenges faced by the student and the teacher, they embark on a journey of building trust with a lot of unknown space between them.

Four Walls is a story inspired by Henrik Ibsen’s Doll’s House and Dr. Rajeev Naik’s Manoos Ghar. It is a riveting tale of a couple going through an emotional roller coaster. Are the same values we held decades ago valid in today’s world? Is the definition of home still the same?

The play explores this delicate relationship between a man and a woman, in a contemporary and non-conventional way. Does one truly know who they really are? The cast of the play includes Makarand Bhave, Rahul Oza, Seema Shahane and Madhuwanti Bhatt and it is written and directed by Dr. Mohan Shahane.

Both the plays are a production of Theatrix from New Jersey and are being brought to the DC area by Natya Bharati, an organization aiming to bring quality theatre to audiences in the Washington, DC, area. Established back in 1984, over the years, the nonprofit has brought to audiences an array of different plays on stage. The tradition continues with these two plays.

Whether you are a seasoned theatre goer or somebody beginning to take interest in Indian performing arts, both the plays will have a lasting impact on you. For tickets and more information, please visit
