Criterion Theatre reviews



By Kushal K.

I saw this play with a friend of mine in June 2011. Must saw, it was by far the worst play either one of us had seen. Added to that, we were under the impression that this was the original story and not a parody. So that made things worse since we could even understand what they were mocking. But even judging by the reaction of the audience, the play was quite a bore, don't understand how it won the awards it did.
