      Edward Albee wrote The Zoo Story in 1958. Rejected by New York producers, the play premiered in West Berlin in 1959 and subsequently in the US in an Off-Broadway production in 1960. Since then,it has been a perennial favourite with theatre companies and has been performed throughout the world. Albee had always felt that Peter’s character was not etched enough and so, forty years later in 2004 he added an Act One in which we see Peter and his wife. So was born At Home At The Zoo.Read More

      The Cockroach Collector is a dark and witty play woven around three people of a doomed household; the mother referred to as Ma and her two daughters, Alka and Mano. Mano is the cockroach collector. Amit, Alka's beau, tries his best to enter the fabric of the family by dealing with the mother's quirky ways and forcing himself into cockroach-friendly gestures that are very much against his own nature. As the mystery of why Mano collects cockroaches slowly unravels, Amit is bewildered at first and then aghast. On the face of it, this is a story of a seriously dysfunctional family. But it is also essentially the story of a dysfunctional world, where horrendous violence and inhuman acts can exist in the crevices of ordinary life.Read More

      Gagan Damama Bajyo: The Legend of Bhagat Singh, written by Piyush Mishra and directed by Riyaz Usman with original music by Alok Kesarwani, is a musical drama based on real incidents taken from the life of freedom fighter Bhagat Singh and his contemporaries. It follows the events from the year of the Jallianwala Bagh massacre in 1919 to his hanging, along with Raj Guru and Sukhdev, in 1931. Far from wanting to cause any bloodshed or violence, his decision to throw a bomb in the assembly was motivated by the desire to draw attention to the questions of freedom and equality. The play also touches on the ideological differences between Bhagat Singh and Mahatma Gandhi.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
