THAKUR'S NOSTALGIA

The Indo-American Arts Council & The Lark Theatre's presentation of THAKUR'S NOSTALGIA in the 2001 Playwrights Festival of the Indian Diaspora, has subsequently been discovered to be an unauthorized version of Jeff Hoffman's "Small Town near Pittsburgh, Too Many Bars". Neither the IAAC nor The Lark Theatre were cognisant of any deception when they accepted and presented this play.
