      A group of people sit and wait in awe as they watch their leader. They are amazed and exhilarated to just see him do the most mundane activities, like eat breakfast and read his newspaper. The celebration is led by the announcer who diligently awaits and calls out the leader's every action. While the crowd is engulfed in excitement, a young boy and girl meet and fall in love. They frolic about the stage amid the rest of the commotion. One of the admirers, a girl, notes with horror that the leader has no head. The announcer points out that he has no need for a head since he possesses genius. Krapp’s last tape is short play written by Samuel Beckett in 1958 about a writer who has recorded his thought and views of his life on audio tape every year since he was twenty four. He has stored and numbered each tape and keeps them locked in a desk at home. From the play as Krapp listens to past recordings we can learn about different events that have happened in Krapp’s past which might give us an understanding about how he was. Also Krapp himself can see how he has changed through the ages and what kind of a man he has become.Read More

       9 Jakhoo Hill is set in the Simla of 1962. It explore a number of themes which continue to have as much relevance today as they did in the sixties: changing values;  conflicts between  old and new;  family relationships and attendant tensions that come to the surface when  skeletons in cupboards begin to tumble out… As love, laughter, loneliness and betrayal confront each other in this powerful drama,   a moment of truth compels each character to reckon with her/his personal demons and transforms their lives irrevocably.Read More

    • Synopsis The very first is often accorded a larger than life proportion on many fronts; and so is a women's sexual experience. 'My Sacred Glass Bowl' looks at the concept of virginity as it is perceived by contrasting communities, from the vantage point of the filmmaker, sandwiched between two mothers bringing up their daughters in contemporary times, connected by a young lady caught in the cob webs. Virginity is premarital chastity and hence within the power equations with regard to men, like the expected post marital chastity, fidelity. It thus forms the first part of a women's life. The film is a document of how women made their sexual choices in the generation that just passed by.  Read More

      K-Pax, based on the novel 'On a beam of light', is a science-fiction psychological drama that explores human acceptance and how rigidly we hold on to our notions - scientific, moral and spiritual, without allowing space to question those very beliefs. The story is set in a mental institution whose newest patient claims to be an alien from the planet K-Pax. Although the initial prognosis is that he may be living with schizophrenia and multiple-personality syndrome, the story teases without taking a clear stance, nudging the viewer to make for herself/himself if the patient is indeed an alien. Or not. More than being about the possibility of intelligent alien life, the play explores the meaning of believing - in empathy, in acceptance and beyond all, in magic.Read More
