“We live in strange times” is an understatement today.
“We also live in strange places, each in a universe of our own.” This Douglas Adams quote can be seen in a new context these days. “Dystopian Dreams” is a collage of three short plays exploring our own space at this time.
- In ‘Rajib’ a single woman is dealing with her pandemic confinement.
- 'Protighat' is an exploration of an inevitable moment in our immigrant life and how we respond to it.
- 'The Insurrection' is a story of someone like us who came to the US in search of the American Dream. However, life decides to take its own turns leading the protagonist down a dark path with shattering consequences.
Taken together, these three plays explore the fragility of our contemporary existence.
