Each play presents a delightful banter between the husband and wife Kishore and Lajvanti and their friend Narayan. Light-hearted and animated in nature, these lesser known plays represent the writer in a different light.
Aao Chori Karein presents the delightful confusion that is caused between Kishore, Lajvanti, Narayan and Mrs Narayan when Kishore’s plan to steal open a parcel belonging to Narayan backfires.
Aao Kahani Likhein is a battle of wits between Kishore and Lajvanti as they plan to script a story with Narayan as the scribe. Who wins the battle ultimately and does Narayan manage to save the day?
Aao Taash Khaylein puts Lajvanti in a dilemma as she begins a game of cards with Kishore only to find that he has other plans up his sleeve. She finds herself instead at the mercy of Narayan who is more than enthusiastic about a new card game he has learnt and is adamant to show it to his disinterested friends.
Aao Baat tau Suno presents Kishore with a series of tasks on a restful Sunday. Will Kishore manage to fulfill everyone’s wishes and yet maintain his sanity?
With live sounds generated during the reading in addition to the musical tracks!
