Miscellaneous notes from the author
A full length play with music and dance, in five acts - although two act length, and with many settings.
This play portrays the kinds of struggles moderates face within the left and right-wing political parties in India. Malati and Praveen, have had opposing political views since their days growing up together in a village, but enjoyed a romantic relationship. Despite his love for politics, Praveen still dreams about being a Bollywood actor... and the play explores the voices of rich, middle class, and poor people, obstacles within families for women in politics, and extreme political rhetoric.
