Produced by Raëll Padamsee’s Ace Productions,

Broken Images

is a psychological thriller that rips the mask off a celebrity. It talks about human behaviour in the 21st century.

The play traces the journey of Hindi short-story writer Manjula Sharma. In the beginning, she is not too successful. She suddenly becomes wealthy and internationally famous by writing a bestseller in English. The question that now haunts Manjula is, whether in opting for the global audience, she has betrayed her own language and identity. Now, without warning, it’s her own image that decides to play confessor, psychologist and inquisitor.

The play is written by Girish Karnad and directed by Alyque Padamsee. Shabana Azmi plays Manjula Sharma.
