The 1.30-hour-long production comprises 30 short plays. These plays, some only 30-seconds-long, revolve around incidents from everyday life which border on the mundane and “things we never really pay attention to”. One story is about a newspaperwallah, another about the tea cups used for the everyday morning beverage, and a third about haggling with autorickshaw drivers. “These are the footnotes of life,” says Bankhwal.
The stage persons are up-and-coming names in Delhi’s theatre circuit and have also participated in the Old World Theatre Festival and Short+Sweet theatre festival. “There are eight actors who play at least three characters each while performing around 30 plays in less than 90 minutes. We’ve been practising for a month, and it’s been one crazy journey so far,” says Bankhwal.
