The play is written by Girish Karnad and directed by Alyque Padamsee. It is produced by Raëll Padamsee.The play is in English.
This is a psychological thriller that rips the mask off a celebrity. The twenty-first century is the age of the electronic image. From every corner of the world, electronic images are confronting, entertaining, educating the people and offering a virtual world. The play is about Manjula Sharma, who is not a very successful Hindi short-story writer. She suddenly becomes wealthy and famous by writing a best-seller in English.
The question haunting Manjula is, whether in opting for the global audience, she has betrayed her own language and identity. Now, without warning, it’s her own ‘image’ that decides to play confessor, psychologist and inquisitor. For tickets, log on to www.indianstage.in, www.bookmyshow.com
