I had to look up the word ‘Carnage’ to get an idea of what I’m in for. I took a glance at the Alliance and I thought to myself this does resemble the ambiance I grew up in doing plays at school in Coonoor. Theatre has had an impact on the students of the Nilgiris. It is the Epitome of Hyperbole that fills the childhood memories with a silver lining.
Now let me fill you on the Production company – Black Coffee Brew!
BCBrew or black coffee brew. Way back in the 00s, when Black Coffee was a prolific theatre company, we ran an email mag called the brew. In the absence of Facebook, twitter, hash tags or pokes, the brew quickly became a wall (wait a second, FB you owe us big time) to exchange notes, have a scrap, review stuff (no one does that any more), connect with people and so on. Here then, is the BCBrew in an FB-2013-appropriate version. Looking forward to loads of conversations (and fights, oh yes, lots of gossipy catfights).
Now Wikipedia ‘The Gods of Carnage’ to find out what I’m talking about, you have exactly 4 and half minutes to get back. At the Alliance, Black Coffee Brew productions presented the play that had a subtle start which allowed the audience to hop on the story board and settle down to start the rumble of laughter. The option for going for a play was mine so my friends told me that they hope they have a good time.
The Play had its roller coaster ride moments and there were quite a few of them. The actors were well versed in timing and appropriate on language, and when I say Appropriate on language I mean they used forbidden words to a very good extent and it extended their impact. I’ve seen a theatre artist right before the play begins and I’ve seen them right after the play ends, and of course, through it all and I love the theatre, cos it’s the most elevated platform that leaves an impact on the human mind.
Here’s what my friends have to say about BCBrew’s The God’s of Carnage
Ok , what I’m trying to say on this blog is BCBrew knows theatre and in fact they can introduce you to good theatre. So in the most decent version that i can think off is “Shhhhhhhh the Act is about to Begin”(PS :- Broke a couple legs that night!)(PS :- Broke a couple legs that night!)
