The theatre performance is based upon gender issues and will have two monologues. Famous delicacies from Bihar and Bengal will follow the hard hitting performance to give the audience a whole new experience. “This is the first time that I have collaborated with my old friend Priyadarshini. What we bring to stage is intimate theatre. So after the performance, we will have a curated discussion with our very small audience. Once, that is done, we can enjoy the wonderful food that’ll be on offer,” says Zubin Dri­ver, writer and director of the monologues while talking to Mid-Day.

Talking about the food which is a part of the experience, Chef Gupta told Mid-Day, “Not many are familiar with Bihari cuisine. This is a great platform to boost a culinary tradition that is so diverse and delicious. So from the state, I’ll be making makuni, which is their traditio­nal roasted gram flour-stuffed paranthas, and mutton chura, a north Bihar delicacy with slow-cooked mutton that’s spiced with coriander and garam masala. Besides, there’s the narkeler bora (coconut fritters) and alur dum from Bengal, among others,” she explains.
