Trivial Disasters: Play Review

What do you do when it’s confession time but you have nothing to confess about? You quickly run out and kill a man, of course!Or at least that’s the logic followed by Trivial Disasters.

Featuring stars like Kalki Koechlin, Cyrus Sahukar, Purab Kohli and Richa Chadda; Trivial Disasters is a series of comical sketches that find hilarity in the mundane. The vignettes take everyday incidents and twist them in ways that smash stereotypes and ensure a laugh riot!

Trivial Disasters follows a number of absurd scenarios. A man struggling to propose to his girlfriend. A talk show host interviewing famous serial killers. A woman negotiating (read: bargaining) with her husband’s kidnappers. A suicide salesman who moonlights as a counsellor. Parents who think their son is coming out to them. A poet who gets stuck writing traffic slogans. And a young boy who realizes that he has nothing to confess!

These are some of the highlights of Trivial Disasters, which takes you on a roller coaster ride of laughter. Every one of these episodes is presented in a way that pleasantly surprises the audience with just how weird things can get.

All four actors deliver brilliant performances. Though they portray multiple characters through the duration of the play, each of them have distinct mannerisms, accents and idiosyncrasies. In fact, it’s easy to forget that just four actors are playing most of the parts.

The women are remarkable as each and every one of their characters. Kalki Koechlin expertly plays an Italian suicide salesman (yes, sales’man’!), a talk show host, and a blind poet, among other characters. Richa Chadda is just as good as the typical Indian mother, a saleswoman and the housewife getting ready for a kitty party. The vignette featuring her as a woman haggling with her husband’s kidnappers is undoubtedly the highlight of the show!

Though the women steal the show, the men deserve a round of applause too. Their individual performances are rivaled only by the sketches where they come together. They shine as the serial-killing brothers who dole out advice to aspiring serial killers.

The acting and stellar dialogues are further enhanced by the set design and background score. The minimalistic set only features cardboard boxes, which are rearranged to form the "props". This lets the audience focus on the dialogues and the acting, adding a nice touch to the play.

Overall, Trivial Disasters is a delightful watch. Even if you don’t laugh out loud at every vignette, you’re guaranteed to have a silly grin on your face at the end. Watch it for its unconventional (and hilarious) take on love, marriage, family and everything in between!
