Summer Camp’s theatre group organized street plays this Tuesday on the occasion of ‘No Tobacco Day’. The plays took play at Gujar ki Thadi, where artists tried to spread awareness about the ill effects of tobacco and smoking. Their play titled, ‘Beedi Todo, Cigarette Chhodo’ aimed at encouraging people to quit smoking and live a tobacco-free life.
35 artists performed two plays under the direction of Neeraj Kadela. The artists prepared the plays on their own, right from the scratch. They have written the scripts as well. During the play they also requested the state government to launch very strict rules for making the state free from all sorts of addictions. They also demanded that the warning of ‘how injurious smoking and tobacco are’ must be presented in big letters in their advertisements.
A person standing in the crowd threw away his packet of tobacco and vowed to never consume it again after getting inspired by the play. Artists consider that moment to be the real success of their play.
