Shadow: A Broken Day
Akshara Theatre & Saitan Theatre Group are back again with their new Hindi stage production "Shadow: A Broken Day". The basic idea of the play is woven around a Vigilante Drama featuring caped crusaders and other superheroes as depicted in graphic novels.
Year 2055, a City engulfed in crime. Ashwath Sinha should have been leading a normal life with his wife Tahira, except that 6 years ago, "one bad day" changed his life. The Bombings in the city killed many, including his wife. Imagine how difficult it becomes when life treats you so harsh.
After Tahira's demise Mr. Roy takes care of Ashwath, teaching him to fight the inner and outer battles of his life. Between the paths of life and death, Ashwath transforms into a savior -- "Shadow", taking on the responsibility to free the city from crime. Every night he wears a mask to protect the city. And slowly Ashwath, losing his own identity, turns into Shadow.
Shadow's entangled life story leads him to The Professor, an unbalanced man in a balanced world. The Professor has a mission, and to achieve it he will cross all limits -- social, emotional, ethical.
In the Tussle between Shadow and The Professor, Ashwath sinks into the gloom of Tahira's death and that one Broken and Bad Day.
One single day can turn a man Good or Bad. One Bad Day can change the whole story.
