A licensed adaptation of Yasmina Reza’s 2009 Tony Award-winning God of Carnage, the play portrays a meeting between two couples over a peaceful resolution of a minor altercation between their sons. The meeting slowly but surely escalates into different shapes and sizes of violence, tearing apart the veils of civility and exposing the conflict that lies at the heart of human coexistence.
This Marathi adaptation of the celebrated French play is set in urban India, where the fault lines of gender, class and caste are casually visible. Uchhaad is full of subtle humour that plays on social rituals and the need to keep up appearances.
The play has completed 23 shows and has been staged in Pune, Mumbai, Kankavli, Belgaum and Kolhapur. It won three Zee Natya Gaurav Puraskars for Best Play, Best Director and Best Actress in a Lead Role. It was nominated for the MaTa Sanmaan Awards 2023, presented by Maharashtra Times, in the Best Play, Best Actor and Best Director categories.
