Set amid protest movements and a failing government machinery, Rahul Da Cunha's play The Bureaucrat is a political satire on real life problems of the middle class. To be staged in the city on March 21, the play has actors Bhargava-Krishna, Neil Bhoopalam, Jaswinder Singh, Sukant Goel, Aseem Hattangady, Shivani Tanksale and Natasha Azad playing pivotal roles. A political satire lasting less than two hours, takes a look at the times we live in through deceitful Delhi bureaucratic intrigues, back room deals, hidden pasts, convolutions of Indian politics and a man trying to come to terms with his own son, and eventually, himself. It will be performed at Al Fresco, Radisson Hotel, Kharadi. Doors will open at 7.30 pm.
