Event Information

Sakharam Binder is a play by Indian playwright Vijay Tendulkar written in Marathi and first performed in 1972. Sakharam Binder, the protagonist, thinks he has the system by the tail and he can disregard the culture & societal values as long as he is truthful. That system is the de facto enslavement of women in post colonial India, despite the promises of democracy and modernity. Sakharam, a bookbinder, picks up other men's discarded women—castoff wives who would otherwise be homeless, destitute or murdered with impunity, and takes them in as domestic servants and sex partners. The play has since been adapted and translated into many Indian languages. In this adaptation we take a look at his views about the narrow-minded attitude of the world around him, while he himself is a borderline misogynist. A study in contrasts, Sakharam and the people around him will make you sit up and take notice.
