This research work analyses the power grabbing dynamics existing in a group of theatre artists. Vijay Tendulkar has brought to the forefront the naked cruelty and ruthlessness of the rest of the group against the character of Benare, a school teacher. Through the framework of ‘a play within a play’, Tendulkar showcased the psychological warfare and violent verbal abuse under the masks of fictional characters. The play projects that women are victimised only for trying to live their lives on their own terms and consequently are brutally silenced by patriarchy, comprising not just the men, but women as well. It’s a psychological study about characters which break another individual only to silence their own insecurities and jealousies.
