Afterlife of Birds

The  play revolves around the notions of nationalism and loyalty. It is an attempt to examine the uprisings of common people, of the varied positions between ‘for’ and ‘against’  and how history deals with failed movements. Set against the backdrop of the LTTE women’s cadre and false encounters of young muslim boys, it is a tale of bravery, disappointment and moving generations. The play happens on the night of January 25th, the play revolves around the stories of Rashid  and Poorani, two people connected by history.
