A Friend's Story
Vijay Tendulkar's revolutionary play, A Friend's Story, elicited significant public reaction when it was first performed in India in 1981. Set in and around a college campus in the Poona of the 1940s, A Friend's Story is about three students in a complex love triangle. The play explores a theme that was still considered taboo at the time - that of two people of the same sex being in a romantic relationship. With the magnitude of a Greek tragedy, this timeless tale of obsession, jealousy, betrayal and redemption expanded the horizons of Indian drama when it was first performed, and remains just as relevant today.
