ABOUT THE PLAY

Written by Vijay Tendulkar, one of India’s finest contemporary playwrights, originally in Marathi in 1972. This is one of his best- known plays. Sakharam, a book-binder, picks up other men’s discarded women – cast-off wives who would otherwise be rendered homeless and destitute, or be murdered with impunity – and takes them in as domestic servants and sex partners. Ruling his home like a tyrant, and telling each woman she is “free to leave” whenever she wants, he does not anticipate the moral and emotional complications of this arrangement, which prove heartbreakingly ruinous to everyone involved.
