Event Type: Play

Duration: 1:30:00

Sakharam Binder tells the story of Sakharam’s women. They are the castoff wives- homeless and destitute - taken in by the protagonist as domestic servants and sex partners.Laxmi is shy, submissive and pious while Champa, her successor is brash, voluptuous and spoiled. One of Vijay Tendulkar's most controversial plays, this play vividly captures the strange and complex pathology of Sakharam, who while on one hand, wants to please his women, on the other hand, bullies them as well. He is, in one moment, a freethinking crusader for women’s rights and the very next moment sees him as a philistine- scornful of their devotion to him. He strongly believes in exploiting the corrupt system for his own gain but realizes too late the price of playing the game. Written by - Vijay Tendulkar Designed & Directed by - (NSD) Bhagyashree Tarke
