Butter and Mashed Banana is a play where there are no real characters, motivations or moments of emotional truth. It goes from three actors in real life to three characters on stage caught up in a frenzy of activity ranging from International best sellers to instant stardom and conflicting ideologies. The story is about a boy. But soon it stops being about a boy. And soon after that it's about the boy again, except by now he's turned into a world-famous writer who's facing rabid opposition to anything he tries to say and do. And, there is music and movement all the while, tangentially taking digs at ideology and censorship, among other things. Butter and Mashed Banana takes an irreverant and humourous approach to see what offends us and how.
Butter and Mashed Banana has won both critical and mass acclaim over the last two years. Besides Bangalore Butter and Mashed Banana was invited to perform at the Prithvi Theatre Festival in Mumbai in November 2006.
