Directed by Saumya Joshi, this play dwells on the complex dynamic shared between father and son. A family of three stay together in a two bedroom flat however there is no communication between the father and son. While the former is just entering retirement the latter is on the lookout for a bright career. Watch as the play highlights the conflict between middle-class reality and upper-class aspiration, between the service class and the business class, between an experienced head clerk and an inexperienced M.B.A. The play, despite its serious nature, is also peppered with sarcasm and humour. An interesting watch, we say!
Date: 28th November, 2014.
Address: Prithvi Theatre, 20, Janki Kutir, Juhu Church Road, Juhu, Mumbai.
