Girish Karnad's Tughlaq is one of the greatest plays of Indian theatre. This play, which revolves around an eccentric ruler in Indian history and the events of that time, can never be irrelevant. Political strategies, religious intrigues, religio-political conflicts and personal relationships are interlocked in the play. This presentation of the play is an attempt to bring it closer to contemporary times, to 2023, both inwardly and externally. Inwardly by examining Tughlaq’s personal turmoil, and his relationships, externally by bringing up contemporary events. It is an attempt to see Tughlaq as a common man rather than as a king, thereby understanding the present in both general and political contexts. At one end there is the king, the king's stepmother and his statesman, while at the other end there is a swindler, a thief, some rich men and priests. It is also an attempt to understand what impact the orders of the palace have on the population at large.
