A play that will make you laugh and cry. For the story it tells is absurd, yet so true.
The school authorities at Ultra Modern School are very strict and structured as they take pride in being the only English medium school in the small town of Haldwani. How do two misfits with a vernacular, ordinary background find their voices in a hyper-competitive, ruthless classroom obsessed with ‘sounding English’?
Can the politics of language make a compelling comedy? Can the inherent germ of imagination break through the linguistic hierarchy? Can a revolution in storytelling start from a school bench? The two act, 90-minute performance of attempts to ask such questions, while it tickles your funny bone.
