Every theatrewala has a burning desire to perform onstage, but what one encounters before being onstage is the world of the inglorious backstage.
Backstagewala Koni is a narrative that gives inner shades from the life of a struggling actor who wants that one desperate chance to prove himself and satisfy his longing passion. He tries hard, struggling to enter a theatre group, to get even a single entry on the elusive stage. The performance humorously represents the variety in the life of a theatre actor, its audience, and critics, who come together to develop a full set of drama.
The play also deliberately points out the various different perspectives and ideologies of people who pursue theatre and arts. Backstagewala Koni is a story of a young actor and his overwhelming journey working backstage. But is he successful and satisfied at the end of it all?
