Description

A Wake by Eastern Thespians

English | 90 minutes

Set in a remote house near Lolegaon, a quiet hamlet in the hilly northeastern region of West Bengal, India, on one stormy night when a few old friends have gathered for the wake of their deceased friend, Roger Vaz. Although initially the characters interact in a manner fairly congruous with the sombre situation of an old friend’s demise, as the play develops the interactions gradually become awkward and hints at a dark past which forebodes a still darker aftermath. As the night progresses, the old friends are forced to play a bizarre game through which the play hurtles to its inevitable and brutal climax as a long buried truth of intrigue and deceit surfaces.

Suitable for those aged 12+

Established in 2012, Eastern Thespians is a contemporary theatre group based in London. Drawing on the rich resources of both eastern and western life, thought, philosophy and art forms, both traditional and contemporary, they are committed to presenting live theatre that is vital, thought provoking and engaging. Their aim is to produce theatre in all its genres which appeals to London’s multilingual and multicultural community.
