Religion versus Rebellion
Theatre veteran Makrand Deshpande will stage his critically acclaimed play Joke after a long hiatus. The title of the play has a sardonic connotation. It reflects on certain religious practices that the society follows without reason.
Author Sandip Joshi (played by Deshpande) is an atheist, unlike his very religious and god-fearing wife. One day, he decides to round up all the idols of Gods at home and discard them in the sea. A constable spots him and apprehends him for a moral crime. Soon the constable learns that the man he has caught is Sandip Joshi - the writer who his sister adores.
Watch the play to find out how things pan out.
