A powerful production telling the remarkable story of the short life and lost work of Kerala writer PM John, shortly before India’s Independence from British rule in 1947, which unwinds a tale of Empire and migration across three generations of one family, in search of ‘who we are, what we are, what we believe’, and what home means. An intimate solo show about personal and political independence, painted on an epic canvas.
