The Interview

Yesterday, I watched my first play after school at Ravindra Bharathi as a part of The Hindu Metroplus Theatre Fest 2011.

"The Interview", an award winning play directed by Akarsh Khurana of Akvarious Productions depicted a stressful interview of a desperate job seeker at the country's largest corporation. It showcased the dark aspects of corporate culture through black humour and had the audience in splits through most of the play. The job seeker is promised the job if he successfully completes a personal errand for the interviewer. How the interviewee uses his resourcefulness and if he is successful forms rest of the play. With a running time of 80 minutes and lots of witty dialogues, this play is a blast!
