About the Play
A Matter of Life and Death is an adaptation of Badal Sircars controversial play, Baki Itihas (The Other Side of History) where he almost justifies Suicide. Life as we live it, the playwright suggests, is full of deceit, self-denial and meaningless pursuance of habit. Hence, you have a clear option.

In a realistic backdrop of Calcutta of the 60s, a writer couple fictionalizes a prequel to the suicide of a man they both read about in the morning newspaper. In effect, we get two seemingly convincing stories being enacted on stage. But a work of fiction being what its name suggests fictitious, it is time the real protagonist makes an appearance on stage and starts his argument in support of why one should choose death over life.

With a series of interesting turns and twists from start to finish, this is an edge-of-the-seat watch. Created by the master theatre scientist, Badal Sircar himself, this is one original play which catapults Indian theatre literature to the bar set by the likes of Athol Fugard, Arthur Miller & Edward Albee.

About the original author
Badal Sircar (1925 2011) is known for creating a genre of theatre which breaks away from the proscenium as well as the One wall. Devoid of any sets, costumes, props and technical support, his plays are staged anywhere and everywhere, funded by a hat collection after each show.

He had started out as a playwright, and in this avatar, he as penned many successful proscenium plays among which Baki Itihas stands tall.

A Matter of Life and Death is an in-house adaptation by Dr. Soumitra Chakraborty and Ranjon Ghoshal of Forum-Three.
