About

Vijay Tendulkar's revolutionary play, A Friend's Story, elicited significant public reaction when it was first performed in India in 1981. Set in and around a college campus in the Poona of the 1940s, A Friend's Story is about three students in a complex love triangle. The play explores a theme that was still considered taboo at the time - that of two people of the same sex being in a romantic relationship.

With the magnitude of a Greek tragedy, this timeless tale of obsession, jealousy, betrayal and redemption expanded the horizons of Indian drama when it was first performed, and remains just as relevant today.

As we mark 50 years since the decriminalisation of homosexuality in the UK, this play is a timely reminder of how far we have come, and how far we still have to go.
