About the Play:
The play dissects the class and caste antagonistic forces prevailing across a vast rural landscape of Saroha. This assembly constituency has become a hotbed of state politics. Dalit leader Bisu, who protested against the destruction of property of landless Dalits by landlords, has been brutally murdered. This gory act of ‘high’ caste landed aristocracy has threatened the survival of the ruling party of the state. The production brings into focus not only the inherent contradictions between Dalits and the forward caste landed aristocracy, but also the contradictions among the ruling classes. Here is a system which continues to perpetuate the supremacy of the landowning class determined to destroy in a ruthless manner any attempt at resistance.
