Endings is an avant-garde play borrowing heavily from the theatre of the absurd to explore some hard hitting truths. A Dramarsis production, this original play written by Navoneil Bhattacharyya and directed by Shekhar Sanyal questions conventions galore and turns them on their head. Be it genders and gender roles, norms of society or even well established structures of storytelling – there are no holy cows in this play that unfolds in a tongue-in-cheek fashion creating no room for preachiness. It is a delightful smart play that will leave you happy yet challenged, amazed yet involved, and thoughtful yet puzzled.

This series of shows is part of the Young BIC Theatre Experience – an initiative to bring carefully curated live theatrical experiences to young audiences over a sustained period of 5 weekends.
