A powerful politician’s son gains power. A young girl becomes an activist. Two lives that run in parallel. What happens when they finally intertwine?
Alipha, written by Poile Sengupta is a mesmerising play of gender and social inequality. Through a backdrop of a multitude of human emotions, two parallel stories evolve. Two lives. Two people who pass each other like ships in the night. We watch a young girl grow into adulthood as the stories unfold and begin to mesh together like pieces in a jigsaw puzzle.
Written in 2001, Poile Sengupta’s riveting and hard hitting play remains as devastating in its relevance as it was seventeen years ago.
