The arrangement is fraught not only because the sisters are involved with the same man, but because as they respond to life together, and separately, they continually modify the image they have of each other and the world around.

The twenty-first century is an era of electronic images. From every corner of our daily life images fling themselves at us, arguing, accusing, wheedling, until the very essence of our private existence seems threatened. But suppose the most deadly of these images were one’s own shattered self?
Arundhati Nag plays both the sisters on stage and their many images, as they morph into one another, in one of the most compelling /complex / demanding roles of her career.

The play was recently staged in a prestigious festival in Esplanade, Singapore.
