A Fistful of Rupees

Venue: Godrej Dance Theatre

Date: 10th April, 5:30pm

Tickets:  Rs- 450/- for members & Rs- 500/- for public

A Fistful of Rupees considers the idea of what it means to truly ‘arrive’ in this expansive and yet tiny world. Flitting between grim realism and outright absurdist humour, the play is both an ode to Mumbai’s overpowering personality, as well as a heartfelt journey of a young person navigating opportunity and despair with equal earnestness. At some point, Raghav must decide whether he wants to continue to spectate and observe, or finally jump in as well.
