After four houseful shows in July 2016, we are back again with renewed vigour, more content and a grander presentation of the play Ek Shaam Premchand Ke Naam. Munshi Premchand believed that literature is the trustworthy knowledge that lights our paths when we lose our way, and litterateurs are the torch-bearers of this truth. He was the first Hindi author to introduce social realism in his writings. He believed in social evolution, and his ideal, was equal opportunities for all.

Ek Shaam Premchand Ke Naam is an anthology of his short stories and stage adaptations of the same, along with a glimpse into his life events.

Kafan - A dark comedy and a heart-wrenching story where a woman dies during child birth. Her husband and father-in- law raise money for her Kafan , only to realise the futility of it. It deals with the survival instincts of the dirt poor ...

Sadgati - Premchand deals with the social exploitation of the ‘untouchables’, their abject poverty and their dehumanization by the upper class. A dark truth which keeps re-surfacing even in today’s India...

Panch Parmeshwar – A story of two friends. A story of responsible behavior, when you are put in a position of power. You cannot afford to see the world through coloured spectacles when you are a Sarpanch...

Poos Ki Raat - A story of a poor farmer who struggles to ward off the bitter cold of winter nights, with only his dog for company...

Literature according to Premchand, is a powerful means of educating public opinion. His greatness lies in the fact that his writings embody social purpose and social criticism rather than mere entertainment.
