ECTA - the well respected and renowned Theater group pf New Jersey presents their play "Ekti Gnaye Thaki " ( We live in a village ) written and directed by Dr. Sudipta Bhawmik.This play has been staged all over USA multiple times over last 5 years - specially in Theater festivals like "California Natyamela " and in Bango Sammelan.
What makes a family? Who are our family members? Who is our brother and who is our sister? What expectations do we have for our family? What are our demands? Do we all live in a village of strangers?
“Ekti Gnaye Thaki” is the story of Ranjana and her brother, Rajat, reuniting after fourteen years. Rajat immigrates to the US with his family after Ranjana sponsors their green cards. The reunion is marked by its usual excitement followed by nostalgia for their hometown they both left behind. Rajat becomes a critical link for Ranjana to relive her past, while Ranjana helps him come to terms with his decision to abandon his familiar world back in India . Ranjana is also ill and Rajat’s presence offers a long awaited emollient. As the brother and the sister often slip into the past, the rest of the characters are excited at the prospects of their future in the US, especially Rajat’s son, Rajib. Life gradually settles down and a quotidian harmony evolves. Yet from the beginning, the play occasionally and quite subliminally alludes to an underlying subplot that threatens the apparent calm between the two families. Eventually, through a set of related incidents, the undisclosed piece – a rather disconcerting one – is revealed. The disclosure tears apart the inherent peace and more importantly sets in motion a drift into the past that interrogates their relationships that were deemed normal.
