His ‘Bedtime Story’, a victim of censorship in the 1980s, gets a new life
A bedtime story is meant to calm and lull a child to sleep. Kiran Nagarkar’s deceptively titled play, Bedtime Story, does anything but that. It shakes the audience’s conscience with an uglier representation of the myths, stories, and fables in which it is taken for granted that a hero acts like a hero and a villain is the villain. It is that trance-like equilibrium that Bedtime Story, now published with the screenplay Black Tulip, shatters.
