The annual fest of Miranda House – Tempest, started on 20th February with an inter-college stage play competition organized by Ariels, the English dramatics society of the college.

The competition saw plays by seven colleges namely, SRCC, Ramjas, SGTB Khalsa, Northern India Engineering College, Kamala Nehru College and Hindu College. These colleges performed the plays titled The Nerd, The Private Ear, Bande and Can’t Pay, Won’t Pay (both by SGTB), Butter Chicken, Cover Story and The Fifth Symphony respectively.

The award for the Best Play was won by SGTB Khalsa’s Can’t Pay, Won’t Pay – a play that has won laurels recently at Udaan as well.

Ramjas College’s Neil won the Best Actor (male) for his performance in The Private Ear.

In addition to the winning spot, SGTB Khalsa took home three more awards. Their play Can’t Pay, Won’t Pay received the Best Director and the Best Actor (female) award. Their other play Bande got the prize of the Best Set Design. Ramjas College’s play The Private Ear, won the Best Technical Team award.

“Our event this year was an attempt to bring together some of the best plays put together by various college theatre groups. It turned out to be quite successful.” Said Varuni, the President of Ariels, “It was a delight to see such wonderful performances. The audience was also very responsive.”

A first year student of English in Miranda House, Himanshi can be best described as someone who loves to read, write and sing. She worships Pink Floyd and Kurt Cobain. When not writing quirky lyrics and articles, she can be found singing on the top of her lungs. She wants to spend her life exploring her fixation with country music and Chevy trucks while travelling and writing about it, listening to any Beatles song in the background.
