A society unveiled

The play Silence! The Court is in Session by Vijay Tendulkar will be staged at Ranga Shankara on June 10 and 11. The translator is Priya Adarkar while the play is directed by Kishore Acharya.

It’s telling of the potency of a play, when it continues to be staged decades after it was originally written.

In Silence! The Court is in Session, Vijay Tendulkar takes the covers off a conformist society, to show us just what it is capable of when given the power to lord over those who live by their own rules.

With a drama woven into a drama, the play revolves around a theatre group about to perform a play in a village. As the plot thickens the comforting mist of ‘pretend’ starts to dissolve revealing the frustrated, bitter and jaded lives of the performers.

 Light years ahead of its times, Silence... exposes the dark side of middle-class morality, where judgements are passed by the minute and silence is often the only recourse left to the defendant. The play will be staged at 7.30 pm.
