About This Show

Casteism is a form of social stratification based on the division of people into rigid social groups by birth and ancestry resulting in social inequality found in neolocal residence patterns, paternal political dominance, endogamy, and segregation. The caste system is an ancient social hierarchy that has been officially abolished in 1950, and it’s been rapidly declining in last few decades, but people, specially in rural India do not have equal access to opportunity irrespective of their caste even today.

SETU’s upcoming production “Evil of Casteism” comprises 3 short plays :

1) Vijay Tendulkar’s “Kanyadaan”, which roughly translates to “Giving the Daughter Away”

2) Munshi Premchand’s “Sadgati” (The Salvation) depicting the tragic story of a low-caste village couple and a heartless Brahmin couple.

3) “Mini Love”, based on Eugene O’Neill’s Anna Christie, presenting an uplifting story of love between a prostitute and an upperclass
