A Montage of Three Plays

Synopsis:

“Iswar, Prithibi, Bhalobasha” is a montage of three short plays. Each play tells a different story, yet their characters all grapple with a common crisis that threatens to destroy their world of existence. 

Iswar, the first play of the  series of three, is about self-introspection and search for truth. Swami Atulananda, a Hindu monk visiting USA to preach Vedanta, experiences a strange epiphany that forces him to rethink about his existence in this fragile world.

Prithibi, the second play, is about finding one’s place in this world. Shyamali, a small town girl is faced with a choice between two worlds. A foreign world of wealth and luxury, or a world of a struggling middle class society that she calls “home”. Which one would she choose?

Bhalobasha, the third play, is about love. Pijush, a love-torn sexagenarian, attempts to propose to his ladylove using tips from a Gen-Y youth. What happens next is a revelation that Pijush had never envisaged.
