Description

Three plays in the naturalistic mode, set within the four walls of a city apartment, throwing people into close contact, relationships unraveling under pressure, the moment of crisis in each case precipitated by an absent presence who is never seen on stage. Intense human dramas, each once, reflecting the claustrophobic lives of their urban characters.

All three plays deal with urban dilemmas. Hidden faces, visible screams that leave the character in moral dilemmas and the denial of the growing void in their lives. It is an ugly face of Indian society but a face that has been successfully mirrored through these plays. This holding a mirror up to our society is necessary, in order to understand the source of its ugliness, and the beauty that eludes it.
