Cutting Chai with Bhawana Somaaya - Day 385

Scenes from a Marriage

The Gujarati theatre is famous for their popular plays but also their experimental plays. Haji Ek Varta strings five distinct stories penned by renowned authors and exploring marital relationships. Some laced with light-hearted banter, some reflective and poignant and some reliving the innocence of friendship before the world became polluted and divided by narrow domestic walls of communal riots and other discriminations.

The five stories traveling the tapestry of marriage are written by Jyotinder Dave, Bakul Tripathi, Saroj Pathak and Moti Prakash. Conceived and directed by Abhinay Banker it is an Aarambh Arts Academy Presentation.

Scenes from a marriage are always interesting and when performed up close all the more. Haji Ek Varta premiered at NCPA Experimental, Mumbai.
