Tamasha Theatre Company will stage two shows, the first being Fourteen Songs, Two Weddings And A Funeral, Tamasha's adaptation of the Bollywood film Hum Apke Hain Koun, playing from Sept. 19. The second show is Deepak Verma's Ghostdancing, an Indian adaptation of Zola's Therese Raquin. It runs from Oct. 10 for four weeks in the Lyric studio.
