"A Perfect Sandcastle", written by English playwright Rachel Barnett, is a sad, sweet story about 6 people whose lives intertwine one day in a small resort town on the English sea coast.

 

Rachel, a young playwright (only 28 years old) has given us a story about choices we make to move on or stay put, to grow old, to love, to mourn, to remember, to die, to live eternally, to suffer when we try to hold on, to let go and let be.

 

  Actors: Swar, Damian, Amy, Anna Durga, Masha, Ladina and Drupad.

 

Directed by Jill.

 

Lighting Design by Jean L.

Sound Recorded by Matthia.

Sound Tech: Axel.

Set from Auroarchana ( Coco and Clemens). 

Original Music by Hartmut. 

Surfboard by Himal and friends.

 

With many thanks to Anna, Penny, Joel, the Visitor's Centre Cafeteria and the Bharat Nivas Group.  

 

Our very amateur theatre group would like to welcome three new actors to the stage: Ladina, Amy and Damian!

 

The Auroville Theatre Group is a project of SAIIER (The Sri Aurobindo International Institute of Educational Research)
