What defines the Modern Indian Woman? "Dolls" delves into 10 personal stories - part real, part fiction all through 10 women and the sum of their experiences. Sometimes we seek way too much inspiration from idols and heroes at a distance. We forget the everyday challenges, conflicts women face, and more importantly, overcome. In different styles of Storytelling, the play attempts to weave in the spirit of women - each of their stories, symbolized by a doll, that brings forth humour, pathos, wit, passion, grit and a myriad of emotions which we as a society have been ignorant of. Their stories may not seem special, but they ring true to the audience, and we experience it everyday - but it's special to them, the actors, as they LIVE it - everyday!
