A Friend’s Story – Produced by Akvarious Production & NCPA and Directed by Vijay Tendulkar

A still from 'A Friend's Story'  

Set in and around a college campus in Poona (now Pune) in the 1940s, A Friend’s Story is about three students – the diffident Bapu, the carefree Mitra, and the deceptive Nama. Essentially a love triangle, A Friend’s Story is Vijay Tendulkar’s understated ‘Greek tragedy’ about obsession, jealousy, betrayal and a search for redemption.


Director’s quote:

“Tendulkar's plays have been performed regularly and repeatedly over the years. Except perhaps one, which for the sheer quality of its writing, deserved to be staged many more times than it was: Mitrachi Goshta (A Friend's Story). One of the reasons for this could have been that it was written before its time, and its first staging was received with some discomfiture. The growing relevance of its theme, the sensitivity of its characters and the complexity of its structure offered a challenge that I couldn't resist.”
