'Life is never as beautiful as on the first day'
The play is not just a story of friendship between three very different creations of nature a pig, a fox and a mayfly and the fun they have on the day meet. It is also a tale that describes the importance and significance of 'time'. It tells us that the span of our life does not matter, what matters is how much we can live in every moment and make every moment count. It reinstates the fact that if used well, a full life can be lived in a single day.
A fox and a wild boar watch the hatching of a mayfly. Aware that it lives for only a day, they are faced with a dilemma. Who cares about a mayfly anyway? But when they meet a beautiful flying insect, who has spent years preparing to hatch into the world, they begin to think again. So starts an adventure because of which, which nothing will be the same again for them. Join these wonderful creatures on a crazy, poignant and surprising journey through life and its rich mysteries.
Mayfly is just a name. These flies dont necessarily live in May alone. They are also known as the dayfly. There is a reason for this. They live in water, as larvae, for three years and when they hatch, , they live for just one day. By night, they hatch eggs in the water and die. A whole life is lived in the one day out of water. Hence the name 'Dayfly'.
This play is being performed at Ranga Shankara and is going to be a wonderful experience.
