      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

      Jagdish Raja, Founder Trustee of Jagriti Theatre in discussion with writer Suresh Menon about his book Why Don't You Write Something I Might Read. "This is a book under 300 pages packed with views, quotations, comments about people of letters from across the years and countries. I read it and hoped that I could remember half of what I had read and who I had read about. I would then be known as a well-read man!" - Jagdish RajaRead More

      The Vaidya's Oath is a theatre project on anti-microbial resistance. Dr. Ajay has been demoted, a punishment transfer from his hospital in Allahabad to a Primary Health Centre in Katkoot, UP. Uma, his wife, is a Bangalore girl. She can't hack Katkoot. Then she finds out she's pregnant. Meanwhile, Kamala, a local girl, has a baby boy ill with sepsis. Can Dr. Ajay cure him? And then there's Rahul, a seismologist who wants to be a stand-up comedian. Will the marriage survive? Will the baby live? Will Rahul get a laugh?

Director’s Note: Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is a world problem but is especially an Indian one. In a land with more mobile phones than toilets trying to keep AMR at bay is hard. It may seem like someone else’s problem. Try telling that to Kamala and her new-born baby with sepsis… Read More
