Moonshine and Skytoffee

Adaptation, Comedy, Drama | english | 1hr 40mins
'Moonshine and Skytoffee' is based on two short stories by the acclaimed Malayalam writer Vaikom Muhammad Basheer. Both explore love in unlikely circumstances.

The Card-sharpers Daughter (Mucheettukalikkaarantaey Makal) is about the love that develops between Sainaba, the daughter of Ottakannan Pokker - a cardsharper, skilled in luring unsuspecting victims to part with their hard earned money, and a lovable rogue, Mandan Muthappa, a pickpocket, who considers himself an artist. Though doomed to fail, a combination of persistence, charm and favorable circumstances wins out in the end.

The Love Letter (Premalekhanam) is about the love of Kesavan Nayar, a Hindu, for his landlord's daughter Saramma, a Christian. The course of this love affair, which seems completely one-sided at first, is charted with great wit and subtlety by Basheer. In fact both these love stories play themselves out with unexpected twists and turns, all laced with Basheer's sparkling wit and irrepressible humor.

Moonshine and Skytoffee is Perch's oldest play, and came into being even before Perch was formed. It was first staged in 2004 (in collaboration with Chennai based Magic Lantern) and again revived in 2008 for a 3 week - long festival organized by Perch to celebrate Vaikom Muhammad Basheers centenary year. It was last performed in 2010. After being staged to packed houses in Chennai, Kozhikode, Bangalore and Mumbai, it is now being revived again for Perchs 10th year.
