Wed Lock (2009)

Udit and Shilpi - Wedlock


Wed-lock showcases the institution of marriage. Done in conjunction with and at the behest of Delhi Commission for Women, the play is a forum exercise aimed at young people, seeking from them their expectations from marriage. The opening show was at the Shri Ram Centre on the 23rd evening. The play has been taken to colleges of Delhi University and shows have been held in villages and bastis where we work. The play has also been staged in Bangalore as part of a theatre festival. Begun as an exercise for the promotion of Pre-marital Counselling, the play went exploring the plethora of ideas of love and romance, of same sex relationships and legislations around divorce. The plot has constantly been evolving with inputs from the young audience.
