The Opening Story “Lamb to the Slaughter” was published in 1953, is about a wife killing her husband with a leg of lamb and has elements of dark comedy and an unexpected ending, typical of Roahl Dahl. The cast includes Sanika B Singh (Mary Maloney), Abhimanyu Gupta (Patrick) and Raunak Ahluwalia, Aryaman, Uday & Akshay as detectives. “Playing Fields of Simla” is an autobiographical story, based on the author’s childhood memories of his school in the hills and his separation from a friend during the partition of 1947.

The stories have been directed by Zubin Mehta, a known name in the theatre circle of Chandigarh, especially children’s theatre. According to the director “The idea of three stories not only adds different flavors to the performance from an audience’s perspective but also gives an opportunity to the actors to play multiple characters. “Playing Fields of Simla is my personal favorite and very close to my heart” adds the director.
