In the world of modern plays, Anupama Chandrasekhar shines as one of the most acclaimed playwrights of our time. With a unique ability to capture the complexities of human relationships and societal issues, Chandrasekhar's works have become thought-provoking experiences that delve into the depths of human emotions and reveal uncomfortable truths.

One of her most powerful works is "Disconnect," a play that explores the impact of technology on our lives and the erosion of personal connections in the digital age. It exposes the dark underbelly of our society, where virtual connections have become more prevalent, often replacing genuine human interactions.

Set in contemporary Chennai, India, "Disconnect" follows the lives of four individuals whose paths cross due to a shocking incident. A young woman desperate for attention turns to social media and finds herself caught in a web of deceit. A successful businessman struggles with the consequences of his actions as they begin to unravel his personal and professional life. A middle-aged woman, consumed by her online persona, grapples with the loss of real-life connections. And a journalist, searching for truth in a world of fake news, becomes entangled in a dangerous game.

Chandrasekhar's masterful storytelling weaves together these narratives, intertwining them with themes of addiction, isolation, and the consequences of our online actions. Through her intricate dialogue and compelling characters, she invites the audience on a journey that forces them to reflect on their own relationships with technology and the impact it has on their lives.

The play raises several important questions. Are we becoming a society that prioritizes virtual connections over real ones? How does social media manipulate our perceptions and contribute to a sense of disconnection? Do we truly understand the implications of our online activities?

Chandrasekhar tackles these questions head-on, presenting a nuanced portrayal of the complexities of the digital age. Her characters grapple with the consequences of their actions, highlighting the potential dangers of unchecked technology use. Through their journeys, the audience is prompted to examine their own behavior and the role technology plays in their lives.

One of the strengths of "Disconnect" is Chandrasekhar's ability to create realistic and relatable characters. Each protagonist is flawed yet compelling, their struggles mirroring those faced by many in today's society. They are not mere caricatures, but individuals whose experiences resonate deeply with the audience.

Fueled by Chandrasekhar's evocative words, the play's themes come alive on stage. The tension is palpable, the emotions raw, and the impact profound. She deftly explores the complexities of human nature and the dark realities of the digital world we inhabit.

The power of Chandrasekhar's writing lies in its ability to provoke thought and foster meaningful conversations. "Disconnect" continues to resonate with audiences long after the curtain falls, leaving them with a heightened awareness of the implications of their own actions and the importance of genuine human connection in an increasingly connected yet disconnected world.

, Anupama Chandrasekhar's "Disconnect" is a gripping and thought-provoking play that explores the dark realities of the digital age. Through compelling characters and evocative storytelling, Chandrasekhar forces us to confront our own relationship with technology and the impact it has on our lives. This play serves as a powerful reminder of the importance of genuine human connection in an era dominated by virtual interactions. If you're looking for a captivating theatrical experience that challenges societal norms and prompts introspection, "Disconnect" is a must-see.

An urgent expos茅 of the realities behind the international call centre.

Your credit card is maxed out, and you hang up the phone on Ross chasing your payments. But Ross is actually Roshan and though the sun is shining for you it鈥檚 past midnight in his window-less call centre. With a new accent and invented back story, bright young graduates in India are renamed and rebranded as they work to claw back the cash spent by Americans crippled by debt.

'a minor marvel... Disconnect is the Glengarry Glen Ross of our day. It raises profound questions of identity and refers to an even darker world than that of Mamet's play, but with added brio and lightness of touch' - Independent

'gives us an insider's portrait of modern India and a fresh, poignant meaning to the insidious idea of the American dream' - Guardian

'exciting and poignant, Disconnect keeps its audiences hooked throughout' - Daily Telegraph
