      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

      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

      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
