Baby's Blues
Curated by: Surnai Theatre & Folk Arts Foundation

Susan and David, a couple of Indian origin living in the US, live a seemingly perfect life until Susan gets pregnant and delivers a baby girl. The play opens with Susan's soliloquy and her apprehensions about the myths on motherhood. After the birth of her baby, Susan slips into a strange depression, hallucinating and interacting with imaginary characters, a 19th-century physician, Dr. Marcé, her mother and most importantly her alter ego, herself in childhood. The play follows her journey as she copes with the demands of a new born and her own inadequacies as a mother and her resentment at being confined to the house. Directed by Ila Arun & KK Raina. Passes available on
