The festival is organised by the Sahitya Kala Parishad and Delhi government's department of art, culture and languages.

Ranjit Kapoor's ‘Chekhov ki Duniya’ will open the festival with a collection of six short stories by the Russian writer, depicting the fragility of human relationships. ‘Abducting Diana’, a play by director Avijit Dutt, is a chaotic, comic account of the bungled abduction of a millionaire media boss.

"Love in the Time of Oppression" by Faizal Askazi is a heart-warming story of a woman's courage, self-sacrifice, imprisonment, exile and redemption, spanning sixty years in the life of a character called Magda.

"Barefoot in Athens" by Raj Bisariya revolves around Greek philosopher Socrates' life, while K.S. Rajendranan's "Aurangzeb" is a theatrical account of the life and times of the Mughal emperor.
The plays will be staged at Sri Ram Centre for Art and Culture.
