Pretend is a dramatised musical, which is billed to be held today (12) from 7pm to 9pm at the Bishop’s College Auditorium. Described as a musical that is said to “expose an abstract link between reality and pretense, where inverted emotions and personalities will be depicted in the vibrant setting of a circus,” it is one of those plays that might come as a breath of fresh air this festive season.
From circus characters, like the circus master and mistress, to clowns, magicians, mimes, gypsies and acrobats, it promises to be a night of song and dance but with an almost sinister twist, which unveils the inner conflicts one would encounter when forced to pretend to be someone else, all the while consciously aware of being a different person when away from the limelight of society.
Tickets range from Rs.1000, 750, 500 and 300 (Balcony), the proceeds of which will go to Samata Sarana (Help For All), which focuses on the slums of Colombo North. For more details call : 0777873007.
