NCPA Presents the Company Theatre production

Hindi Urdu and other languages

Our lives—the good, the bad and the ugly—and how the making of one book, through the power of the written word, changed (or did not change) everything. Aaeen is a musical comedy bringing together four different stories—written by Amitosh Nagpal, Purva Naresh, Sarah Mariam and Varun Grover—all traversing the impact of the constitution of India in different spaces, woven together through movement, music, interaction and more.

In Nagpal’s “Kala Akshar Bhains Barabar”, we get to see what happens in the fantasyland where Mr. Raj, a chaat-pakodewala, decides to declare a country of his own, setting his own rules with a few friends: a goat and a kid.

Mariam’s “Aaj Shahani Hai Raat” encircles a mysterious wedding procession where nobody has seen the groom or knows who he is—but the revelation is larger than it seems.

In Naresh’s “Pashu”, two people guard a field at night, awaiting and fearing a mythical creature, the Pashu, while engaging in a telling conversation full of humour.

Finally, Grover takes us through the story of a stand-up comedian who has been jailed because of a joke, in “Desh Drohi Akshar”, a quick-witted take on the sedition clause and its misuse.
