Event Description : The group "No One" is founded by young Theatre enthusiasts and Chief Ki Dawat is No One's very first production.


The play is an adaptation of Bhisham Sahani's short story "Chief Ki Dawat".This story was written in the 1950s. Even after 70 years you can still closely identify with the characters, the upwardly mobile executive and the simple Mother. 

Shamnath is a middle level executive eager to ingratiate himself with his boss to climb the corporate ladder. He has invited his boss and his wife for dinner at home. He and his wife are busy making preparations for the perfect evening. Shamnath is a fastidious person and wants to make the perfect arrangement for the party.  However, there is a problem, that is his mother. Shamnath thinks she is backward, inarticulate, clumsy and he is keen to altogether avoid any contact of his mother with the boss. He thinks it would be severe embarrassment for him.  Elaborate instructions are given to her on where she could "hide" at specific times during the evening depending on where the guests would be at that time. She is forbidden to sleep as her snores would disturb the party. As her misfortune would have it, despite all her efforts, she falls asleep and hence does not adhere to the hiding script authored by her son. The Chief sees her and engages her in small chat about the folk traditions, music and handicrafts. He is specially interested in Phulkari. Shamnath's mother feels very guilty on coming in the way of her son's progress and she regrets spoiling the chances of his career with her rustic ways. Shamnath smells on opportunity here to ingratiate himself with his boss makes his mother promise a piece of Phulkari to the boss. He takes his mother for granted throughout even in the end when he nearly forces her to commit to the Phulkari. The mother is clueless on how to handle herself but her overwhelming feeling is that she is worthless and should not come in the way of Shamnath's guests, she even contemplates shifting permanently to Haridwar.
