Hindi Play

An NCPA Presentation

The play explores the life of an old man whose son is suffering from depression. As the father tries to understand why and how his son has reached this point, he starts looking at their life as a family, himself as a father and the inexplicable nature of mental illness. As the father goes deeper into the past and present, the piece begins to investigate the strong forces and bonds that operate within a family, pulling us together and apart. The piece also attempts to create a conversation around depression, from the standpoint of the outsider, in this case, the father, who is watching his son descend deep into an isolation that will drown them both. During the performance, the protagonist directly addresses the audience, sharing his fears, his failures and his achievements. In the process, larger questions around relationships, mental health and the inherent strength and frailty of the human condition are highlighted.

Written, directed and performed by Anoop Gupta.


Box Office now open.
