FirstAct: Watch Chanakya Vyas' Leftovers, a play about a residents' meeting amid a pandemic
Chanakya Vyas' Leftovers examines a pandemic's semantics, its effects on everyday lives
Editor's note: With FirstAct, Firstpost is collaborating with theatre and improv artists from all over India, who'll perform short pieces or readings over a Zoom video-conference call.
After FirstAct's debut show with Improv Comedy Bangalore, followed by Drama Queen's For Tomorrow, Theatre Jil Jil Ramamani's Haiku in a Bun, and OGLAM's Abey Yaar!, we are all set to present our next — Leftovers.
Resident meetings of B Wing Belle View Apartments always included debates over security, surveillance and sanitation. But now, as neighbours worked together to ensure safety amid a pandemic, these debates gained greater significance. In this backdrop, a Zoom meeting between the residents takes an unplanned turn, and what remains is a series of confrontations till the call lasts.
