Dhumrapaan is a play being staged between December 7 and 9 at The Cuckoo Club in Bandra. As the name aptly suggests, it is set in the smoking room of an office where the employees are discussing their personal and professional lives, including their work, relationships and upcoming appraisals, smoking all the while.
Coming from the fact that most of us have either been in the set up shown here, or are at least familiar with it, it is for anyone who has been stuck in the corporate rut of things and wanted to get out. It may also be for someone looking for a different perspective given to smoking, and its adverse effects.
Everyone knows that a conversation is one of the easiest to strike over a shared cigarette or a request for a lighter. It will be interesting to watch this everyday situation being lifted and used as a background for this play. They will also show the strong male dynamics inside the room, especially how they change when a woman joins in, which is sure to be a good conversation-starter.
If you like to know who you’re going to be watching, the cast includes Mishra, Shubrajyoti Barat, Siddharth Kumar and Taaruk Raina. Book your ticket here.
