Kali Theatre presents


By Deepika Arwind. Directed by Jo Tyabji

Thurs 5 to Sat 7 Oct 2023

An excitingly theatrical and chilling horror story for our time.

Mehrosh, a celebrated student activist has been invited to an isolated house in the middle of a forest to take part in a debate with a powerful political adversary from the ruling party. It’s a chance to make her voice heard.

Fearful of the coming conflict, surrounded by eerie shadows and mysterious noises, and increasingly uncertain of what she is told, Mehrosh starts to feel a growing paranoia that the people around her are not what they seem…

This gripping psychological horror for our time explores the dangers of right-wing populism and unbridled social media to show how fear can be manufactured and manipulated with chilling consequences.

Deepika Arwind is an award-winning international playwright originally from Bangalore whose work has been presented across India, Europe and the USA.
