Curious Case of a Liberandu
Sun Feb 26, 8:00 PM
Sifar Theatre Group
The play is based loosely on real-life events involving a student activist labelled as ‘Anarchist/Terrorist’, who dies under mysterious circumstances while in police custody. The events that led to his death have not been revealed as of now. The truth is slowly revealed through the actions of a scheming con man known only as the Maniac as he puts on a show while he’s detained in a police station. As the maniac recreates events, cover-ups and corrupt officers are exposed. The play explores themes of political corruption, repression, the nature of truth versus illusion, class struggle, and the conflict between reformers and revolutionaries.
