Atlas Meet SPECIAL!! - Watch a live performance of Ayn Rand's play "The Night of January 16th"

The next monthly Atlas Meet in Delhi will take place on Sunday, April 11 at India Habitat Center. It will depart from its regular routine for a very special occasion - the chance to see a live performance of Ayn Rand's famous courtroom drama "The Night of January 16th"!

The play is being staged by 5Elementz Art & Culture Society ® and directed by Rakhi Manuv. (Read more about the play below.)

The Atlas Meet will be held at the restaurant "EATOPIA" in IHC at 5.30 pm. After snacks and discussions, we will proceed to the auditorium at 7 pm. The play begins at 7.15 pm. Although the show is ticketed,  it will be complimentary for those attending the Atlas Meet.


Night of January 16 is a Play written by AYN RAND , inspired by the death of the "Match King", Ivar Kreuger. First published in 1934,  it takes place entirely in a court room and is centered on a murder trial. It was a hit of the 1935-36 Broadway season. The play deals
with issues of a man's ability to regard oneself as important and exist in a society wher
e moral decay is ever prevalent. It also deals with issues of love, loyalty and betrayal. 

What is particularly interesting is a feature of the play which picks members of the audience to take on the role of Jury members each night. Depending on whether the "Jury" finds the defendant of the case, as in the play, "guilty" or "not guilty" - the play would have different endings.
