Hridipash – A meld of events painted in shades of happiness, confusion, hatred, fear and helplessness

Set against an undulating backdrop of pre and post independent India (1941-1956), Hridipash by Bratya Basu, accentuates the Athenian tragedy blended in colloquial form and presentation. The play meanders us through the Journey of ‘Hridoy’ (Sumit Kumar Roy and later Kaushik Kar) who tries to escape his fate and prophecy of murdering his father and taking his mother to bed. The tragedy is established in a meld of events painted in shades of happiness, confusion, hatred, fear and helplessness – emotions that so well portray the social perplexity today.
