the-protector-at-my-theatre-festival-season-vi-at-jagriti-bengaluruWhen birth givers are framed as abusers of their infants, would moral reasoning supersede their allegation? The Protector, written by Sudipta Bhawmik, craftily tests the boundaries of parental rights and sheds light on the struggle of immigrant couples. An Indian couple, in their early 20’s, settled in the United States, come to terms with the CPS (Child Protection Service), on the account of alleged ill-treatment of their infant. The couple hopelessly stranded in foreign lands, seek the help of their most trustworthy friends, to fight against the rudimentary system, and in the process, regain custody of their child. Does the heat of the plot subside further away from the task at hand, and pave way for demons uncalled for? Find out soon!

Absurd Drama (English)

Playwright: Israel Horovitz
Director: Anuraag Vikram Kate

Cast: Santhosh, Manmeet, Aloka, Kate & Raj

the-line-at-my-theatre-festival-season-vi-at-jagritiAdapted from the 1967 play by Israel Horovitz, this absurdist drama is still a perfect reflection of the world we live in. Standing behind a white line, five people fight for the first spot in the queue, and their attempts get more and more callous as the play proceeds. A cricket fanatic who feels hard work deserves it’s due, a Rahman fan who manipulates everyone with his rigmarole, a conniving female who uses her sexuality to lure the men out of line, her confused, germophobic husband, and a selfish elderly gentleman who looks out only for himself – each character, though different in their ways of thinking, have one goal which is to come first. So, who will win? Who will have the last laugh? Who will be at the front of the line?

Duration 70 Minutes
Age: 16years and above
