Still Hungry

Picture a dingy, dimly-lit hovel that houses nothing but a famished and an agonised family, desperately seeking an escape. That is exactly what Bhoko Ghar (The Starving Home) opens with. The family of four continually dreams of fleeing from their immediate conundrum. And just like its characters, the play Bhoko Ghar—currently on at Theatre Mall—seeks to flee from tragedy by embracing satire and comedy. Throughout the 65-minute long play, both the characters and the audience oscillate between moments of deep-seated and evocative tragedy of the situation and the absurd yet comic follies of the protagonists.
