A hilarious, ingenious plot. Lovable
characters. A barrel of laughs.
A case of switched identity
– what would switching your life with
your long lost friend feel like? And therein lies the humorous tale of Dhruv,
the Inventor. Dhruv switches lives with his friend Mahesh due to a quirk of
fate and inadvertently lands in an “I-am-you-and-you-are-me” situation where he doesn’t even know the way to the bathroom in his own house!
Bringing up the rear is a
crazy family - the harried wife, a philosophical brother who sees the world through an alcoholic haze and a house help with a poetic
inclination. And of course, there’s the lovelorn girl-next-door, and wait… even
a petty thief.
The play transports the
audience to the magical reaches of imagination with its unique plot, witty
dialogues, truly hilarious situations and unforgettable characters.
