About The Play

13 Margosa Mahal, (a play in Kannada) is a haunting story which has been everyone’s favourite for reasons unknown. Our main objective for this play is that the audience laugh & get scared at the same time. That's why the tag line "Horror was never so funny". Being associated with theater we had this urge to create a thriller and bring out the chills and thrills through it. 13 is our attempt to create a play which will keep the audience interested throughout and take them on a mysterious journey.  With two up to the brim full houses we are all looking forward to our three Friday the 13th's shows in January, April and July of 2012.

The play revolves around three men from the IT industry who are picked to attend a conference in one of the famous hill stations of south India. The story begins to grip the audience when the three encounter spooky happenings around them and their so called paid vacation turns into a scary experience. The play has five supporting characters who play an equally important part in generating the comedy, suspense & trills.

Music Director: Raghu Dixit

Less said the better about one & only music composer/singer/performer & his magnificent contribution for our production. In his own words “When Sathish told me the idea of the play I was mostly thinking about how it would feel. It had been a while since I did any music for theatre. I know Sathish from theatre & this is my small little contribution to his theatrical efforts & great venture called Kala Soudha.”
