Producing plays abroad is very challenging. Without good scripts and dedicated actors on the one hand and audience and patrons on the other hand, the spectacular work of theater fades away. A key component of drama is the audience. The goal of various techniques in drama staging is one – to make it enjoyable for the audience! New ideas are created in their minds. So if the audience’s pulse is connected with the theme of the drama, then the task becomes quite easy

As it appears in time, it fades again with time! But there are some events which can never be fully shared with anyone, but have to carry the burden or the pain for the rest of their lives! The story of the drama ‘A Pair of Shoes’ is based on such an incident!”
He added, “This is a ‘surrealistic absurd drama!'” Therefore, as the audience will be entertained by the play, they will also be enlightened.”
