Event Description : THEATRE "Can’t Pay! Won’t Pay!" Hindi Comedy play as part of 'Saksham Theatre Festival 2017'


The play is set in an economically depressed working class neighborhood in India where food prices are skyrocketing. People are resorting to eating "Dog Biscuits", "Millet for Birds" instead of their usual gastronomical fare. The very funny physical farce gets rolling when Laxmi tries to hide the fact that she smuggled food out of a supermarket during a food riot from her husband Govind, who would rather "starve than eat stolen food. While stealing is objectionable in a society, is it not more criminal to see prices raised beyond people's ability to pay? In a world where eating is supposed to be a right and not a privilege, aren't horrible crimes being perpetrated by a society making eating problematical? This satirical play is about the social and economic injustice done to the plebeian society by the patriarch. The play is set in relevance to today’s time when unemployment and food shortage are latent and freedom of expression is supposed to be a right but really it isn't.
