About this show

Gritty, ballsy, wickedly funny and politically effervescent, Mareech the Legend is a cult hit in modern Indian drama. In his cleverly crafted play-within-a-play, Bengali playwright, Arun Mukherjee draws parallels between different forms of human exploitation and power politics by transposing the action from a historic setting to contemporary times. Told with a mélange of dramatically different, engaging characters, all of whom refuse to let the play come to its logical conclusion by arguing with the soothsayers who string the narrative along with humor and song.
