About the plays:

Monikaanchon
A play by Badal Sarkar
The play revolves round the magician couple Moni-Kaanchon. The play begins with the prime attraction of their shows - a thought-reading trick. At the end of the show their manager comes in to introduce Mr. Mallik, the right-hand man of "Chief". Mallik puts them to a test and a curious chain of events convinces him that Kaanchon is a real thought-reader. Then follows Moni-Kaanchon's encounter with fate......

Shoorpanakha
A play by Jyotsnamoy Ghosh
This play attempts to look at the story of the Ramayana from the point of view of the non-Aryans. The play is set in the court of Ravan, where a heated discussion is on regarding Sita's abduction. An Aryan and a "Shudra" come in to the scenario and help to build up a socio-political picture of the times. The play ends with Ravan promising to take up arms on the cause of the non-Aryans and fight a momentous battle against the Aryans.
