37th tiatr Competition - TOCH PAUS

When one finds out from his doctor that he is dying soon, what choice does he have now?
1. Keep the secret to himself and enjoy the remaining part of  his life to the fullest
2. Tell everyone about it and expect pity or a  ‘sorry’ look from friends and family etc
3. Remain indoors or Commit suicide

This aged father chosen No. 1 as above - to live and enjoy remaining  days of his life the way he always wanted, a rather unusual way – Going back to the past or go back to his childhood (for he lost his own due to poverty).  
Fun, pranks etc did not go well with the family. In fact,  this is the perfect opportunity  or an excuse to the daughter-in-law to send him to an old age home, she  even frames him for something (another prank) he never did.
‘Aged parents, treat them with care’ was the message this tiatr tries to give us all.
Tiatr ‘TOUCH PAUS’ written by Cyril Almeida
(United Dramatic Association, Carambolim, Goa)
Was the third entry in the ongoing 37th Tiatr Competition organised by Kala Academy of Goa and supported by Tiatr Academy of Goa (TAG).  Staged on 13th Sept. 2011

Today's tiatr opened at the hands of Cezer D'Mello (MIL-MEL-NEL)

It’s an unusual presentation with clear message.
