Play Summary

This English and Hindi play is based on the 1959 short story of the same name by Roald Dahl. After William dies of cancer, a doctor transplants his brain, attaching it to an artificial heart. He also hooks up one of William’s eyes to the brain. The relationship between William’s widow Mary and his new avatar reveals the sorry state of their marriage when he was alive.

William and Mary, the middle aged husband and wife, never had a very close and smooth relationship as William, the professor of Philosophy, has been imposing his decision on her life including the decision not to have children. As William was dying due to cancer in his Pancreas his friend, Dr. Lalwani, scientist in Psychology painstakingly convinced him of allowing him to do an experiment to keep his brain and an eye alive after his death. Mary meets William’s eye after the death of his rest of the body. The interaction between three brings out many hidden aspects of man and woman relationship and the same between a person, his/her body and whatever remains without a nomenclature. It is not a horror story, but truth is the most fearful thing.
