(A Tamil Play by Theatre First)
The play, set in contemporary America , is about a couple recently settled in the US . A crisis develops when the couple’s eighteen month old toddler is injured. The play goes on to explore the delicate issue of child care, parental responsibility , mutual love and respect and friendship through a story that goes beyond the seemingly well defined transnational customs. The choices the characters make in the play , their conflicts and tribulations raise enough questions and tries to seek an acceptable solution to a complex problem instead of blaming anybody.
The play with its duration of ninety minutes was originally written in Bengali (Palok) and has been staged several times in United States and in Kolkata. With the permission of the playwright, it is translated in Tamil for playing it to Tamil audience.
