Based on
Shakespeare's Hamlet, Muller's Hamletmachine & Tom Stoppard's Rosencrantz and Guildernstern are Dead.

The play investigates tension between 'right' thought, 'correct' action and its consequences. It also highlight the conflict between two generations and their choices between nationhood, duty, family and love. The show is arranged episodically' in which young performers from different regions of India grapple with concurrent renderings of Shakespeare's text' reconstructing, reappraising and reassigning each time. The time is now, the world is one of violent and competing internationalism. Does hesitation mean anything?
