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
