Overview

Mehrosh, a celebrated student activist has been invited to an isolated house in the middle of a forest to take part in a debate with a powerful political adversary from the ruling party.  It’s a chance to make her voice heard.

Fearful of the coming conflict, surrounded by eerie shadows and mysterious noises, and increasingly uncertain of what she is told, Mehrosh starts to feel a growing paranoia that the people around her are not what they seem…

Phantasmagoria explores the dangers of divisive politics and unbridled social media to show how fear can be manufactured and manipulated with chilling consequences.

Deepika Arwind is an award-winning international playwright originally from Bangalore whose work has been presented across India, Europe and the USA.

Award winning Kali Theatre develops and presents thought provoking contemporary theatre by women writers of South Asian descent.
