Event Description

Aadhe Adhure is an iconic play written by Late Mr Mohan Rakesh, almost five decades ago. The play deals with the strained relationships of a middle-class family. It makes us question who is really responsible for the dysfunctionality of this family. Is it the mother who works day and night to make ends meet, but wishes to escape the clutches of the house? Or is it the father who believes no matter what he does, he is right and in no way harmful to his family? Perhaps it is the children who are drowning in their own selfishness, misery and hatred that they cannot fathom the possibility of their home falling apart. Maybe, it is none of them but the other men who find themselves entangled in this family’s deep-rooted problems. Whoever, it may be, the biggest question still remains unanswered. What will these mere humans do when they are forced to choose between their own happiness and what is morally acceptable? The director of this play, Zafer Mohiuddin, adapts the script into the current context because the nature of our relationships remains the same no matter the changing times The play Aadhe Adhure deals with dysfunctional families in urban India, which is very relevant to the current times where we have been in more contact with our families than ever before. The cast: Dr Kavita, Ashish Athawle, Divya Bajpai, Ganesh Pai, Sachit Murthy, Abhisjeet Sahay, Bhavani, Tarani Jindal, Syed Idrees, Robbie Abraham, Suhail Aryan.
