"Khelure" (Gamer) is a play conceived as a street theater (a form of theater done on streets as a form of mass education or protest) by thespian Deepak Deb. The play uses original songs written to reflect the political turmoil in India after CAA and NRC bills and is presented through an allegory of video gaming and in-build discrimination within the games. 


We stage this in memory of Deepak whom we lost too soon, as a testament to his talent. Please click here to learn more about his life and work.

"Aleek Rasta" (Illusionary Path) is a short play that traces one day in the life of a struggling filmmaker. Presented in reverse chronology through interaction with his wife, lover and his own film characters, we are confronted with his dilemma of artistic integrity versus compromise in the rapidly evolving film world.

We are grateful to the Mass Cultural Council for their generous grant to help us increase our audience reach. We are a theater organization who produce theatre primarily in Bengali. With the Mass Cultural Council grant, we were able to buy a captioning system which will increase our reach to non-Bengali speaking communities as well thus making our productions that much more inclusive.

About Off-Kendrik

   We are a 501(c)(3) Non-profit organization serving South-Asian community of Boston/New England area through Art, Theater and Storytelling for today and tomorrow. Most of our Theatrical Productions are original plays written and performed in Bengali. Super-captions in English are incorporated for non-Bengali audiences as and when logistics permit. ​

    We also present a Story telling event called Voices, every year and now every 3 months with a virtual slam. Modeled after 'The Moth Radio Hour' from Public Radio, 'Voices' curates stories from the South Asian community, loosely themed on immigrant experiences.

    We regularly organize Theater workshops to learn about various forms, techniques and contents of theater and storytelling. We also provide a platform for various theater groups/personalities, social activists and young leaders to talk about their work and express their thoughts.

The recent spate of hate crimes against Asians in the United States, including the vicious murders in Atlanta, brazenly violate all notions of social justice. Deeply committed to diversity, inclusion and social justice, Off-Kendrik stands in solidarity with the ongoing protests against these crimes, as it does with any resistance to racial or other injustices anywhere.
