Kalki Koechlin’s recent play ‘The Living Room’, for which she dons the director’s hat for the first time is about death, amid some comedy. Death has been a subject close to Kalki’s heart, as her first play as a writer ‘The Skeleton Woman’ also revolved around death, birth and re-birth.
Talking about her play ‘The Living Room’, she says, “Two years ago, in the middle of the night, I wrote a two-page scene about an old woman and death. Then I left it, and forgot about it. Six months later, I found it in my notebook. At that time, I was unemployed. I was going through a divorce, and wondering what I should do. So, I started writing again. I finished the first draft, and read it to a few of my friends to get an idea on whether it worked. Then I approached all the actors I wanted in my play, and surprisingly, all of them said yes. The rehearsals started in May this year.”
