The Play is the winner of The Hindu Playwright Award 2016 

There is a strange parallel between the story of Hamlet in Shakespeare’s play and Angada in Valmiki’s Ramayan. They are both princes. In both their stories, their uncle kills their father and marries their mother. But while this sets up an epic tale of revenge and duty in Hamlet, in the Ramayan, Angad hardly even seems to blink. This lack of moral deliberation on the path of Angad can be interpreted in many ways. Without generalizing about East or West, the play instead focuses on the characters and their own emotional journeys. 


In Hamlet and Angad, the two titular characters (or people claiming to be them) find themselves to be patients in an asylum, trapped in a strange, psychological landscape that they struggle to escape. They simultaneously receive news about their respective father’s death. Hamlet seeks vengeance and urges Angad to help him escape. But Angad isn't interested in revenge, he seeks redemption through his love with Tarani. Hamlet and Angad wrestle with ideas of family and identity in this absurdist adventure story – and they do it with poetry and rhyme!
