Samahaara is presenting its theatre workshop production "The Last Wish Baby" on 31st December at La Makaan. Directed by Rathna Shekar Reddy, the play is an adaptation of William Seebring's play "The Original Last Wish Baby".
The Last Wish Baby is a satire which explores the lunacy that surrounds any media-driven issue today. The play begins with the birth of a baby without a heart, yet miraculously alive. The media of the entire country goes into a frenzy covering this new piece of sensational news. A medical marvel turns into a media saga of the infant's journey now known as The Last Wish Baby.
Everyone uses this news for their own ends. However, the heart is found, a separate woman having given birth to it. A clash ensues between the mothers, another media circus is created, and several new products, songs, and movies are launched on this baby's name. With a number of actors playing many roles, the play is spontaneous, hilarious and energetic.
