Play- Shikhandi – The Story of the In-Betweens |

This is a comic, tongue-in-cheek retelling of the story of Shikhandi. Shikhandi is perhaps one of the earliest trans characters known in mythology. Shikhandi was meant to be born male to avenge an insult in her past life as Amba. But the bigger karmic game unfolds when she is reborn as female, raised as male, has a sex change on her wedding night, thanks to a Yaksha, and finally fulfils her destiny to be the cause of Bhishma’s death.

When: Friday, 2nd December - 7.30 pm & Sunday, 3rd December - 5.00 pm & 7.30 pm

Where: Venue Experimental Theatre, NCPA

OCD

Play-OCD

Play-OCD |

OCD is a light comedy about a carefree young man and his over obsessed OCD suffering servant. A kind of role reversal where the servant is after a master’s life to keep things neat, clean and in order. And how in an effort to keep his master’s house in order the servant starts trying to cross boundaries and set his life in order by trying to control his relationship matters.

The play is a funny take on human eccentricities wherein every individual in this world has some or the other quirky habit but he or she feels that the other person is weird and anyone who does not adhere to majority norms is considered a freak.

When: Saturday, 10th December – 5.00 pm

Where: Godrej Dance Theatre, NCPA

Duration: English and Hindi play (100 mins)

Price: INR 708

Where: Experimental Theatre, NCPA
