Ek Shaam Premchand Ke Naam – Hindi Play

January 26, 2017

Kalayan Theatre Presents  “Ek Shaam Premchand Ke Naam” Hindi Play


Playwright and Director: Mathura Kalauny

After four houseful shows in July 2016, they are back again with renewed vigor, more content and a grander presentation of the play Ek Shaam Premchand Ke Naam.

Munshi Premchand believed that literature is the trustworthy knowledge that lights our paths when we lose our way, and litterateurs are the torch-bearers of this truth. He was the first Hindi author to introduce social realism in his writings. He believed in social evolution, and his ideal, was equal opportunities for all.

Ek Shaam Premchand Ke Naam is an anthology of his short stories and stage adaptations of the same, along with a glimpse into his life events.

Kafan – A dark comedy and a heart-wrenching story. It deals with the survival instincts of the dirt poor.

Sadgati – Premchand deals with the social exploitation of the untouchables, their abject poverty and their dehumanization by the upper class. A dark truth which keeps re-surfacing even in today’s India…

Panch Parmeshwar- A story of responsible behavior, when you are put in a position of power.

Poos Ki Raat- A story of a poor farmer who struggles to ward off the bitter cold of winter nights, with only his dog for company…

Literature according to Premchand, is a powerful means of educating public opinion. His greatness lies in the fact that his writings embody social purpose and social criticism rather than mere entertainment.

Kalayan salutes Premchand and serves up for you, Ek Shaam Premchand Ke Naam.
