Prithvi Theatre is tak­ing one step back to go two steps for­ward. The script of Prithvi­raj Kapoor’s iconic play, Kisan, which de­buted in 1956 (with an 18-yearold Shashi Kapoor han­dling pro­duc­tion de­sign), is be­ing dusted off for a new pro­duc­tion. In 2003, Shashi had wanted to adapt the play, say­ing, “I want to make all th­ese scripts, which are the prop­erty of Prithvi Theatre, avail­able for other groups.” It ap­pears that son Ku­nal is fi­nally tak­ing the legacy for­ward, es­pe­cially with Prithvi Theatre turn­ing 40 this year. To be di­rected by Ben­galu­rubased Ab­hishek Ma­jum­dar (in pic), win­ner of the first Shankar Nag Theatre award, the play will open in June-July 2019 at the venue.
