About the Play:

It's been 70 years since we have attained Independence but still a majority of the population does not even have a house to live in. Some have even seen the dream of owning a house and died with those unfulfilled dreams.

Tin Tappar is a depiction of the problems faced by the labour class in India. The poor keep dreaming of having a pucca house, but those dreams are crashed by the builders and corrupt real estate agents. Instead, they have to live in slum areas which is covered with a tin roof. Few of them migrate to towns and cities in search of work and improve their standard of living while others become a victim of the political propaganda and accept their situation happily. The builders don’t even spare these areas and demolish the tin sheds in order to build multi storey apartments and malls.
