One fateful evening in a ladies waiting room at a remote railway station, five women find their lives intersecting with cathartic consequences. Dolly Sodawaterbottleopenerwala (Tanaaz Irani), a middle-aged nurse and home-maker with a ready wit and acidic tongue, finds that the perfect world she thinks she lives in may not be so perfect after all. Madhuri Kulkarni (Dimple Shah), a good-natured, IT professional in her late thirties, realizes that all her superficial sweetness and bonhomie may not hide the fact that her one decision, that isn't really even hers, may slowly be destroying her from within. Paramjit Chaddha (Kishwer Merchant), an excitable, vivacious much-married woman, hides some very important secrets and chooses to give her conscience the benefit of doubt in the pursuit of pleasure, is she right? Ayesha Kapoor (Priyal Malik), the hottest, most alluring thing on television, has the world eating from her hand. At the top of her career, what worrying reason has sent her to this god-forsaken waiting room? Pooja (Shweta Gulati), incredibly articulate and well-spoken, this feisty young company manager should have everything to live for, but does she?
All questions will be answered in Selfie a play that mirrors our need to be perfect like the all-important 'Selfie'. Blemishes must be hidden, flaws must be air-brushed out and the real hard truth has no place in our quest to be picture perfect. But truth always does get in the way as we soon find out.
Be prepared for some awesome wit, some biting satire, a huge dose of gut-wrenching dramaand of course, some full-throated laughter as these strong, capable women leadyou on an unforgettable journey in the all-women, all exciting play
