Sordid is the winner of the Hindu Playwright award for 2019 and will premiere at Natarani!

Director, actor, and playwright V Balakrishnan’s Sordid paints an elaborate picture of a hard truth: the stories of water wives. The term now qualifies as widely known and refers to the practice where farmers from drought-ridden villages marry more than once solely to procure extra hands to draw water. They are stripped of conjugal rights and are assured instead of a roof over their head and food to eat.

While Suki commands the power of the conjugally wedded wife, Jhuri and Kaali are mere ‘Paanibais’. The script, with a primary focus on these characters, also looks closely at the dynamic within this family and bigger questions of marriage, gender, and most importantly, survival.
