It seldom happens that works of noted international playwrights such as Anton Chekhov and David Horsburgh are staged together with the works of Indian dramatists. But the ongoing theatre festival, Hriday Manch, does just that. With four plays from different genres, the festival — presented by Sparsh Natya Rang — opened on Thursday with the comedy Saanch ko na Aanch, adapted from Horsburgh's The Ungrateful Man. The Proposal (based on Chekhov's work by the same name) was showcased on Friday. Lined up for today is the Bengali play Noti Binodini, which revolves around three individuals — a spiritual guru, a common man and a courtesan — and their transformation from atheists to believers. Up on Sunday is An Actor's Work, based on Chekhov's Swan Song. The plays are being staged at LTG Auditorium, Mandi House, 7 pm. Contact: 9810286707.
