About ITEM
What do you think about when you first say the word Item? This play is exactly about that thought, and not about the literary meaning of the word, i.e, a commodity or good. Indians have been suing the word item as a replacement for a sexy looking girl for a long time now. As the proliferation of social media is increasng the society in the past few years, this meaning is of the word item has been blindly accepted by the society. The story is about L.Rakesh who is an ordinary light man in the Hindi B grade film industry and his madam Sapna, who is an actress. Rakesh being a worker, he tells the story through his worker mentality. He tells you about his industry, the films it makes and about his Sapna madam. The play shows the relation between L.Rakesh and his madam, their seclusion and their industry, which due to lack of cinematic sense keeps on showing over exaggerated love scenes using the female body as an object. Apart from Rakesh's story, through its dialogues and scenes, the play emphasises on the male chauvinist media which intelligently uses a woman's image to sell its products and the changing aesthetics because of the same.

About A History Of Butchers
A History of Butchers is based on Albert Camus's 'Les Justes' (The Just Assassins). The original play is set in Russia in 1905, where five members of the revolutionary socialist party are planning to bomb The Grand Duke. Loosely based on actual historical events, Camus's play is a discourse on violence, revolution, morality, justice, love and life itself. The play is however not an "adaptation" or a "reinterpretation" of the original. It's a new text written using Stuart Gilbert's English translation of the Camus original. It borrows characters, plot, events and ideas from the original but instead of a "period piece" our characters exist in a limbo, because the idea of assassination itself transcends the boundaries of time and space. Their play therefore is 'A History' as opposed to 'The History' because it simultaneously lives in past, present and future.
