ABOUT THE TIATR

All three pals are engaged in their own profession — Avinash is a builder, Anish is a lawyer and Anand is an engineer. They happen to meet each other one day, and talk about their profession and lives.

Anish reveals that he already had heartbreak, while Anand confesses that he has found a girl. Avinash is hopeful of finding a mate soon. They part only to meet each other again soon.

Anand and Faye (Jesba) come together and share sweet nothings with one another. As love birds, they promise that they won't dig into the past, but live in the present and make a bright future.

After marriage, everything appears rosy for Faye as she lives with her husband and father-in-law, Casmiro (Laurente Pereira). But, there’s trouble when Anand invites his friends for his wife’s birthday.

Anish and Avinash come along for the grand celebration of Faye’s birthday. After greeting her, Avinash feels blue, and disappears from the scene. Anand is confused, not knowing what the matter is.

Avinash is perplexed as to whether to save his friend’s skin or not. If the hard truth is revealed, it could be disastrous, leading to a divorce. But, come what may, Avinash decides to confess to Anand and ends up revealing a big secret.

Anand cannot digest the truth and wants to divorce Faye. Anand’s father tries to convince him otherwise, but to no avail.

Avinash, who travels regularly to the UK on business trips, marries Laura (Andrea). Faye and Laura turn out to be good friends.

What transpires between Anand and Faye is worth the watch during the second half of the drama.

The beauty of this tiatr is that there are no props used on stage, except for the curtains being lowered and rolled up. That’s something to be learnt about by other tiatr directors.
