Synopsis: Butter and Mashed Banana is a play where there are no real
characters, motivations or moments of emotional truth. It goes from
three actors in real life to three characters on stage caught up in a
frenzy of activity ranging from International best sellers to instant
stardom and conflicting ideologies. The story is about a boy. But soon
it stops being about a boy. And soon after that it's about the boy
again, except by now he's turned into a world-famous writer who's
facing rabid opposition to anything he tries to say and do. And, there
is music and movement all the while, tangentially taking digs at
ideology and censorship, among other things.

Cast: Gulshan Devaiah, Vinod Ravindran and Vivek Madan
Music: Live by Ajay Krishnan
