മുഖാമുഖം : സിനിമ, നാടകം, അല്പം കവിതയും

ഞങ്ങൾ നാടകത്തിന്റെ വർത്തമാനത്തിലിറങ്ങി. ജി ശങ്കരപ്പിള്ളയും അദ്ദേഹത്തിൻറെ ശിഷ്യനായി ഗോപിയും പ്രവര്ത്തിച്ച പ്രസാധന ലിറ്റിൽ തീയേറ്റർ, കാഞ്ചനസീത – സാകേതം- ലങ്കാലക്ഷ്മി – നാടകത്രയം, സി എൻ – സി ജെ എന്നിവരിലൂടെ ഉരുത്തിരിഞ്ഞ തനതു സങ്കൽപം, നെടുമുടി വേണു, ഗോപി തുടങ്ങിയവരുടെ കളിയരങ്ങായിത്തീർന്ന കാവാലത്തിന്റെ തിരുവരങ്ങ് നാടകസംഘം, കടമ്പയിൽ നിന്ന്, എന്തികൊണ്ടോ കടന്നുകയറാൻ അറച്ച് നില്ക്കുന്ന തനതു നാടക പ്രസ്ഥാനം. ചതുരവടിവിൽ മാത്രം നിന്ന് ഞെരുങ്ങുന്ന നാടകക്കള രികൾ, ഇങ്ങനെ ചർച്ച സജീവമാവുകയായിരുന്നു.
