SAARI RAAT Who are you? Only the face you show this world, or something more? What lies in the deepest depths of your desires? Samahaara Workshop Productions presents a play based on Badal Sircar’s SAARI RAAT, a psychological drama that revolves around 3 characters: a young couple and an old man, stuck to spend the night together. It talks about the possibilities we are afraid of considering and the lives we deny ourselves through the story of a woman trapped in a given world symbolized by her marriage to a man who will not see her for what she really is.
BAKASURA An unfit and unworthy King rules a kingdom with the help of his cunning and selfish minister. An evil called ‘Bakasura’ attacks the people in the kingdom. The King and his council of ministers are clueless as to how to handle Bakasura. Who will solve this problem ? Who will save the poor villagers?
