      Adapted from the 1967 play by Israel Horovitz, this absurdist drama is still a perfect reflection of the world we live in. Standing behind a white line, five people fight for the first spot in the queue, and their attempts get more and more callous as the play proceeds. A cricket fanatic who feels hard work deserves it’s due, a Rahman fan who manipulates everyone with his rigmarole, a conniving female who uses her sexuality to lure the men out of line, her confused, germophobic husband, and a selfish elderly gentleman who looks out only for himself - each character, though different in their ways of thinking, have one goal which is to come first. So, who will win? Who will have the last laugh? Who will be at the front of the line?

      When birth givers are framed as abusers of their infants, would moral reasoning supersede their allegation? The Protector, written by Sudipta Bhawmik, craftily tests the boundaries of parental rights and sheds light on the struggle of immigrant couples. An Indian couple, in their early 20's, settled in the United States, come to terms with the CPS (Child Protection Service), on the account of alleged ill-treatment of their infant. The couple hopelessly stranded in foreign lands, seek the help of their most trustworthy friends, to fight against the rudimentary system, and in the process, regain custody of their child. Does the heat of the plot subside further away from the task at hand, and pave way for demons uncalled for? Find out soon!

      Credentials enough...Sahitya Academy Award winner Mahesh Dattani writes this, as he did and direct the film Morning Raaga with Shabana Azmi and a host of others plays directed by the likes Arundhati Raja, Arvind Gaur and Lillete Dubey. Two teenagers in love. WAIT!!...not the kind of love we associate with teenagers. Khudiram Bose and Thillayaadi Velliamai have never met. They were both connected by a common passion: a love for their motherland. "... FERVID SUNRISE" explores how we honour our fallen Heroes and how the Present and the Future will create, nurture and celebrate our Heroes still to come. Beyond jingoism, certainly, beyond blind faith or parochialism, the brave and the young take on an entire establishment, shaking the very foundations of an unjust government. One chooses the bomb; the other chooses self-pride. Our Heroes were there for us at the break of dawn, so that we can now live in dignity and peace. We need them now.Read More

      After four houseful shows in July 2016, they are back again with renewed vigor, more content and a grander presentation of the play Ek Shaam Premchand Ke Naam. Munshi Premchand believed that literature is the trustworthy knowledge that lights our paths when we lose our way, and litterateurs are the torch-bearers of this truth. He was the first Hindi author to introduce social realism in his writings. He believed in social evolution, and his ideal, was equal opportunities for all. Ek Shaam Premchand Ke Naam is an anthology of his short stories and stage adaptations of the same, along with a glimpse into his life events. Kafan - A dark comedy and a heart-wrenching story. It deals with the survival instincts of the dirt poor. Sadgati - Premchand deals with the social exploitation of the untouchables, their abject poverty and their dehumanization by the upper class. A dark truth which keeps re-surfacing even in today's India... Panch Parmeshwar- A story of responsible behavior, when you are put in a position of power. Poos Ki Raat- A story of a poor farmer who struggles to ward off the bitter cold of winter nights, with only his dog for company... Literature according to Premchand, is a powerful means of educating public opinion. His greatness lies in the fact that his writings embody social purpose and social criticism rather than mere entertainment. Kalayan salutes Premchand and serves up for you, Ek Shaam Premchand Ke Naam.Read More
