Hello Farmaaish!, at the Museum Theatre, Egmore; 7.30 p.m.
In a forgotten hamlet, three misfits use a community radio to chronicle Kalpana Chawla’s odyssey into space. Their daily broadcast sets off a flight of imagination and misadventures. The inexperienced RJs broaden their minds and win the hearts of the villagers, making their weekend radio broadcast the village favourite, next only to B.R. Chopra’s epic, Mahabharat. Hello Farmaaish! is a heartwarming story of resourceful women who surpass the limitations of society and their surroundings, to reinvent the world they live in. Hello Farmaaish!, directed by Yuki Elias, was shortlisted for The Hindu Playwright Award 2018.
