Two strangers are locked up in a mysterious room while trying to escape from an unknown occurrence outside, seen as a threat to humans. Their phones are tampered with, their data is lost and as time passes, the only way to know about the outside world is to stay in and join the cryptic social network created for the ones who are still alive. But how long will they choose to play along?
The play is inspired from and based on two source texts: Ashok Mishra’s Hindi Translation of Slawomir Mrozek’s play ‘Striptease’ and Ghanshyam Desai’s Gujarati short story ‘The Crowd’.
The play premiered at the prestigious Ranga Shankara Theatre Festival 2021.
