English Play (135 mins)
Girish Karnad’s contemporary comic-drama, that has completed 300 shows across the world, explores the traditional Indian wedding in a globalised and technologically-advanced India. The play deals with a picture-perfect, urban, middle-class family. On the surface, it is a familiar image – joyful members of the clan coming together to celebrate and reaffirm loyalties. But behind the smiles, there are long suppressed suspicions, jealousies, frustrations and aggression. It’s a hilarious spectacle. And, hopefully, both revealing and moving.
