`The Proposal by Anton Checkhov. Now in 360 degree immersive sensory format`
One fine day our very promising and feeble, sorry .... eligible bachelor Ivan Vassiliyitch Lomov decides to finally confess his love for his childhood friend, who also happens to be his neighbour Stepan Stepanovitch's beautiful daughter, Natalia.
What could have been a romantic evening with beautiful lighting, some nice music, and some very fine champagne, turns out to be a hilarious comedy where all three of them continue to fight over some of the most unromantic subjects like ancestral land and dogs!
Well we, Rangai Theatre company can at least assure you of the beautiful lights and music, the scintillating immersive experience that we provide to our audience and incidentally we are the first and only theatre company in Mumbai to start this culture of sensory immersive theatre(Champagne...umm.. We're still trying to figure out our budgets). As to how the proposal goes, it's best to leave that to the three characters.
Please join us while we bring to you this classic written by Anton Chekov and experience the beauty of being one with the characters in the very mesmerizing concept of 360 degrees immersive theatre wherein the audience is very much a part of the play as the actors are. So be there for the big fat wedding's proposal.
