About the play
A house in Bandra, Mumbai is witness to two inextricably intertwined relationships between
successive pairs of occupants. Pulkit, a banker, has rented a quirky flat in Bandra for the sole purpose of hooking up. One night he meets Sahil, a young PhD student, for sex. Sahil is researching interior design, and is taken by the interiors of the house. He wants to use it for his research, but has to deal with a bitter, cynical and brusque Pulkit. The one night stand turns into something more, as they get to know each other… and uncover the lives of the previous occupants, Jennifer and Fabian.
The Theatre gropup
Frontier Theatre is a new Mumbai based theatre group that aims to create original and relevant
theatre that pushes boundaries. Central to our philosophy is the belief that the content and
form of our work should reflect and document the exciting and dynamic society we live in – a
society that is trying to develop while keeping its roots intact, a society that is struggling to
reconcile Eastern and Western values and ways of life, a society that throws up mind boggling
inequalities, a society that is on the cusp of becoming a major global power.
So get it booked and get going!
