Play Summary

This play has the popular performing tradition of “NAUTANKI” as its backdrop. Till few years ago (and in some parts even today) men used to adorn the female persona and this art was passed from generation to generation.
However towards the middle of the previous century women set foot on the stage. The tussle between the male accomplished actor and the aspiring woman entrails could not have been an easy one.

This is an attempt by two young actors to explore the human dimensions of this phenomenon. The man may exit but the popular female persona continues to persist.
