This is a psychological thriller that rips the mask off a celebrity. The twenty-first century is the age of the electronic image. From every corner of our world, electronic images fling themselves at us, entertaining, educating, enticing & offering us a virtual world. This play is a masterpiece about self delusion and phantom images. Two sisters locked in mortal combat. Who will emerge triumphant?

Commenting on the play, Girish Karnad said, “When T. S. Eliot talked of ‘a heap of broken images where sun beats and the dead tree gives no shelter’ in his ‘Waste Land’, he was obviously talking of concrete images found piled in a desert. The images that surround us---in every burgeoning Indian megalopolis--- are digital, insubstantial but persistent, and the desert they define is our ‘hyper-reality’. We have all morphed into our own images. ”

“A good play entertains. A great play opens windows in your mind through which you see the past and the future in one continuum,” said Alyque Padamsee.
