A play with a message… for a cause

Covai Post Network


The Manal Magudi Theatre Land today staged a play to raise funds to fellow artists who are at dire straits.

Titled Nomads of the Water, the play was staged at Mani’s school by students of the Drama Club of PSG College of Arts and Science.

Scripted by Ustad Bismillah Khan Yuva Purashkar awardee S. Murugaboopathy, the play was themed on the Chennai floods that shook the State. It portrayed how the rains changed the lives of thousands of people overnight.

The artists brought out the inner minds of people and authorities who stood helpless in front of nature and its power. It showed how lives changed upside down for people who encroached water bodies with greed and their late realisation and also how men and their identities were taken away forever by the ghost rains, that still haunts the people of Chennai.

The play also mocked at the Western plastic culture that has made Chennai a huge dump yard as the artists staged a mock ramp walk draping plastic wears from head to toe.

The play had a clear message – how nature can react when humans, with greed and lust, encroach its resources and damage it.
