"REFUND"
Refund is a comedy play that follows Kranthi Kumar, a former student who demands a refund of his tuition fees from his old school, claiming he received no education of value. As he confronts the school's staff, hilarity ensues as they try to navigate his unusual request and unexpected intelligence. The play is filled with witty banter, absurd situations, and clever twists, making it an entertaining exploration of education.

"MUNDADUGU"
Set in a village in Andhra Pradesh, Mundadugu is a play written in the year 1945 by the duo Vasireddy Bhaskar Rao and Sunkara Satyanarayana. This play is about the farmers who were oppressed and exploited by a Zamindar, and how the farmers form an association and revolt against the atrocities of the Zamindar.

Land revenue was one of the major sources of income for Britishers in India. The Zamindari system was one of the land tenure systems introduced in 1793, and the system was most prevalent in West Bengal, Bihar, Odisha, UP, Andhra Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh.
