The Dinner - Play. 'The Dinner' is based on Sulaiman Kakkodi's Malayalam play 'Tragedy at the dining table'. Here the director freely borrows the plot from Malayalam competition playlet of the late 80's with a high doze of absurd theatre influence. The plot revolves around the waiting of two chefs and their preparation for the Dinner of His Highness. The Highness is metaphorically the authority wields his power through the symbolic tool of communication. The commands pronounced through an archaic phone breaks and fragments the monotonous of waiting. And the director breaths in creative moments of imagined realities through the power of improvisations. These suspended studded with aspirations, hopes, and strategies make the plot grow with its philosophical perspectives on life, fall and fortunes of human being. In short the play is truly meaningful in theme, style and approach and audience are open to interpretations.
