Between the Lines is set in contemporary India where educated and affluent couples are caught between modernity and the traditional world. It explores the relationship between a lawyer couple, who have been married for 10 years. Shekhar is a high profiled criminal lawyer while Maya, balances work and life by drafting routine contracts for a law firm. One day they accidentally end up being on opposite sides in an attempted murder case. Shekhar is the prosecutor and Maya, the defense lawyer. As they fight the case in the court, their personal life starts getting impacted.

Between the Lines peels, layer by layer, what is said and also what is often left unsaid in a couple’s relationship. You will get into their context, but will come out of the play dissecting your own! The wit and the pace will keep you engaged till you realize that it has stirred something much deeper. It will raise many questions, answering a few and will leave you with lingering thoughts and feelings.

This is a performance not to be missed. Save the Date – December 19, 2013
