At the monthly theater presentation ‘Rangshala’ by West Zone Cultural Center at Darpan Auditorium, Shilpgram; ‘Mayaram ki Maya’ took the audience into a spell of laughter.
The theater artists from Delhi performed the play, written by Jayvardhan and directed by J.P Singh which encapsulated a story around a clever protagonist named Mayaram who gained popularity in the village with his clever tricks up his sleeves.
