A modern Shakespearean tragedy that explores human psyche
Keshav runs a barbershop with his father, Sakharam and friend, Anthony, in 1984 Pune. When a fateful accident sticks them with a dead body, the three barbers form a twisted plan to use it to solve their financial woes. The modern Shakespearean tragedy that follows, is a character study of what happens to the best and worst of us when the pressure is high, and morals are low.

  1. Best Actor in a Supporting Role (male)

As directors, we were in the enviable position of not only being part of the principal cast of the play, but also working with actors we had collaborated with for the last decade.

From the get-go, we knew that the look and feel of the play needed to be very theatrical in nature so the audiences could look beyond the probability of the play, and concentrate on the nearly farcical character study of three desperate men.

The script was something we had come up with 6 years ago but had decided that we were neither creatively mature nor financially stable enough to give justice to the vision we had.

The Shakespearean angle sort of worked itself into the weaving of the play- mirroring, reflecting and referencing the bard through the silly shenanigans that the lead characters get into.

The final product is a comedy disguised as a Shakespearean Tragedy, delving into how anyone of us can commit the most heinous of crimes, if we just take one step at a time and have enough pressure.
