From the director of “Rabbit Hole” and “The Twits”, comes a brand new comedy. Sandbox Collective presents:
A Little Calm Before The Storm
Three Actors. Two Generations. One Wobbly Table.
An informal conversation before a public discussion on portraying evil takes an absurdly comic turn. What emerges is a clash of cultures and egos between the old and the new. Sparkling with wit, the play is a reflection of our times of life in the theatre and outside,  making it a compelling watch.

Widely adapted and performed across the globe, this production premiered at Deccan Herald Theatre Festival, 2017, and is now performing at Jagriti Theatre.
Supported by Goethe-Institut /  Max Mueller Bhavan.
