Staging 'Chauraha'



Makarand Sathe's 

Design and Direction

Suman Kumar

JNU Convention Centre
7 April 2013  9 PM

***all are invited***


Urban middle class life in our country today is full of paradoxes. And the play “Chauraha” tries to expose many of the contradictions in the society through different characters. The play deals with various issues that confront our society and shows how most people are in a quandary when faced with possible choices or no-choices. Communal tensions, the questions of caste, the status of women, the plight of the downtrodden, the dilemmas facing the intelligentsia, the debates over economic policies, increasing inequalities, the clashes of multiple identities – Makarand Sathe tries to capture the interplay of all such issues.  There is a zeal to change things but the status quo persists with a vengeance. There is a search for peace but there is a violent undercurrent. There is a sense of togetherness but there is opportunism and a visible disconnect.
