A pet snake, a holy man, a reporter, an opinionated urbanite, a curse, a strange night and a bizarre disappearance ….. Satyajit Ray’s classic tale of mystery and mystics is adapted for stage against a contemporary backdrop. Here modern ideas of progress clash with indigenous beliefs, imposed authority spawns subversion, and the conclusion is left open-ended! Scripted by Sankha Bhowmick and directed by Gourab De, the play was initially presented once as a living-room edition (performed literally in a living-room in Acton, Massachusetts) in May 2011, and then at Atlantic Playmakers in Burlington, Massachusetts in June 2011 (three shows).
