Bharati's "Andha Yug" (The Age of Darkness) is perhaps one of the best plays ever from India. Written with the backdrop of the aftermath of WWII and a probable nuclear holocaust, threatening an existential crisis, the play begins on the 18th day of the Mahabharata war and ends with the "death" of Lord Krishna.
A strong double cast will bring these powerful dynastic characters to life, along with dancers, narrators and choristes. An all-male cast, Purush, portrays 15 Pandava and Kaurava males and their allies with Gandhari being played by the only female actress. This, however, is "flipped" in the second all-female cast (Naaree) in which the sole female character is portrayed by a male actor.
