For starters, the play’s already seen its fair share of acclaim, the scriptwriter being a finalist for the Hindu Playwright Award 2016. Apart from that, the Pandies theatre company has been acting and performing theatre for over a decade, so you have yourself some seasoned actors.

Anything Else?

The play will be held at India Habitat Center, and you can buy the tickets at the venue, or purchase them online.
