Celebration: An Evening with Vijay Tendulkar

Join us for an evening celebrating Vijay Tendulkar, a leading contemporary Indian playwright, screen and television writer, literary essayist, political journalist, and social commentator. For the past four decades he has been the most influential dramatist and theatre personality in the Marathi language. Born in Bombay in 1928, he is the author of thirty full-length plays and twenty-three one-act plays, several of which have become classics of modern Indian theatre. The evening will include a reading of excerpts from the upcoming NYC production of Sakharam Binder by The Play Company; short excerpts of his major films; a moderated interview with the playwright; and the presentation of a Lifetime Award by The Indo-American Arts Council.
