Written by Anand Raghav, the Tamil play deals with a hardcore subject taking place in Manipur. Based on an award-winning short story, it describes a game of chess played between two soldiers of the Indian army stationed in Manipur. The play’s narrative moves between the Chess game and various other characters who represent the Manipuri society – a father who is in a desperate search for his son whose whereabouts are not known, a Journalist who is a sympathizer for the separatist cause and a militant who was inspired by the journalist, a youngster who is prepared to sacrifice everything for the sake of a peaceful life, and a girl who strongly believes in the fight through peaceful means. Sathurangam’s theme assumes importance in the context of India’s continuous efforts at fighting insurgency within its border states that seek an identity of its own.
