Avartan Theatre Ensemble is presenting Badal Sircar's play 'Evam Indrajeet', on 25th & 26th September, at La Makaan. It starts at 7:00pm on both the days.
This Hindi play is directed by Satyabrata Rout, and the cast includes Saurabh Gahripurikar as Indrajeet, Satyabrata Rout as Lekhak, Avadesh Jha as Amal, Vasudev as Bimal, Amar Waghmare as Kamal, Shatarupa Bhattacharyya as Mansi, Adity Chowdhuryeejith as Mausi, Krishna Soni as Bade Babu, and Chandra Prakash as the boy on the footpath.
The play looks at idealism and realism. The protagonist, Indrajeet, is an idealist who tries to break himself from the laws of society by doing things differently. The play starts with a writer who painfully strives to write a play but in vain. He is goaded to write about those sitting in the audience, only to find them undramatic.
Here, Indrajeet is described in terms of the society and not in terms of his own existence. There are also Amal, Bimal and Kamal, who confirm to the dictates of the society and prefer to run along the same rope as long as possible. They function as cogs in the wheel, providing amusement with their humdrum existence.
Entry is by donor passes of Rs. 100 per head. Please contact Saurabh Gahripurikar at 92900-13166 for further details.
