Written and directed by Meherzad Patel, The Relationship Agreement is a play that reflects a slice of life in the digital age. It offers an interesting and funny take on modern relationships. To be staged at Tata theatre, NCPA on March 5th, the play stars Sumona Chakravarti, Danesh Irani, Darius Shroff and Meher Acharia Dar. The play marks the return of Sumona Chakravarti on stage after eight years. She was last seen on TV on The Kapil Sharma Show.
The Relationship Agreement is about a couple who draw up a written relationship contract, that they will use to save themselves from the usual trial and error arrangements every couple faces in a relationship. With the help (and resistance!) of their respective parents, they make an agreement with a set of rules, a list of likes, dislikes, things they approve disapprove of and pet peeves. But does this kind of an agreement make a relationship worse or better? As the plot unfolds, this question is answered.
Director Meherzad Patel's plays always have contemporary references and that's the reason why audiences relate to his writing. Just like in his previous plays, 'I'm Bawa And I Know It' or 'The Buckingham Secret', in The Relationship Agreement, you will witness a lot of contemporary references to pop culture, politics, and current affairs. The core concept of the Relationship Agreement is reminiscent of Amy and Sheldon's relationship agreement in 'The Big Bang Theory'. These resonate well with audiences. The writing is humorous and witty and you'll find yourself laughing out loud occasionally. Coming to the artists, the play has got quite an ensemble cast. Sumona Chakravarti is a well known theatre artist. She actually started her career with theatre itself. However, she shifted to television and is returning back to the stage with this play after almost eight years now. Danesh Irani is a regular in Maherzad's plays. Be it “'I' m Bawa And I Know It” or “The Class Act”, the man has got amazing comic timing.
The Relationship Agreement is one of the most popular plays staged in NCPA. After impressing the audiences with its original script and concept, the play has returned to the city for the second time now. There is no dearth of plays in Mumbai . For Mumbai's drama aficionados, this play offers a fresh script with contemporary writing.
