Many initiatives by several theatrical artists have been tried in the past to break the division between the artists on stage and the audience. The Clown’s Cry for the Moon was one of those works performed in the city recently in Sangeet Natak Akademi, Gomti Nagar . Through the play, the well-known director and actor VK Sharma wanted to show the story of a girl named Gudiya, who, due to lack of friends, begins to have a conversation with different characters that are pure imagination of her own mind.

VK Sharma, who started this initiative (to tour the country and show this work, 32 years ago, said: This work is very interactive . During the course of the story, the public learns a couple of dialogues and songs from the play. It has well-known characters like the scarecrow, Humpty Dumpty , monkey, crocodile , spiderman, fox, etc., with which people are already familiar. We have tried especially to make the audience participate in this storytelling, as there are sequences in which the audience is expected to go on stage and recreate 4 to 5 scenes of the play. Our motive behind this is to give the audience the confidence to act unexpectedly on stage.
