Here’s to a successful conclusion of the tournament! Till date, The Theatre Practice has organised the competition for 8 years. We hope that through such an event, students are able to shake loose of the usual storytelling formats, challenge their own imagination and find the joy and satisfaction in creating original stories. Even though there would be those who emerge as winners in any competition, the important question to ask is still: Have you challenged yourself? If you have discovered unexpected inspiration in the process, then you would have gained immensely.
See everyone again next year!
