2.Poem of an Ending
Play Name: Poem of an ending
Original Author: Rabindranath Tagore
Script and Direction: Kaushik Bose
Date: July 20, 2019
Venue: Shri Ram Centre, Safdar Hashmi Marg, New Delhi
Ticket denomination: Starts from Rs. 200
POEM OF AN ENDING is a stage adaptation of Rabindranath Tagore’s ‘Shesher Kobita’, a classic revered by many. The novel has been adapted as radio plays and into a film in Bengali. However, this is for the first time ‘Shesher Kobita’ is adapted for the stage in English for a wider audience. This literary piece is considered as one of the best works of Tagore.
The play recounts the iconic love story of Amit Ray, a barrister educated at Oxford, whose virulent intellectualism reveals itself in its opposition to all forms of tradition. He meets Labonyo in a car accident and the romance builds up in the misty hills of Shillong. Amit’s iconoclasm meets Labonyo’s sincere simplicity through a series of dialogues and poems. But will these two worlds finally meet? The novel explores the realities of love as romance and marriage through a meeting of two mature minds. The story is also supported by Ketaki, Shovon, and Yogomaya who have critical roles in this story of love and conflict.
The play is presented in a unique format where each lead character is represented by an actor and a dancer/movement expert. The unique combination represents love as genderless and universal. The format brings in the contemporary element to the play and makes the production engaging for a young audience. The core idea behind the production is to present Tagore in a new age format, which has not been done yet on stage. With POEM OF AN ENDING, we have attempted to bring Tagore closer to the audience of this new generation and introduce them to the global genius in a new format

About the play:
Before reaching its final destination life takes tons of wished for and unwanted turns. Some deliberately choose the tough path, while some are compelled by life to walk on rough patches. Apoorva is the perfect mixture of both this kind of people. While most believe in routine, Apoorvas life is a set of regimen smashing affairs.
The story of voicemail revolves around the life and aspirations of Apoorva. A character who is hungry to bring a difference to each day, escaping monotony in his unique ways. While a certain Sunday afternoon is dedicated to composing poems, the weekend next is occupied with paint on a canvas. While his poems can be heard on the radio a certain month, some others stay part of his personal treasury. Finding his way through, he finds himself stuck in the maze of a corporate job midway.
One fine day when Apoorva is offered to write a film he quits it all and moves to Delhi. The city throws in his path characters for his film walking on the streets of Delhi, sipping coffee at a local cafe or stuck in a maze-like he was.
An attempt to find a home to live in brings him across Sanya. Each floor of the house inhabits a distinct story. Stories that Apoorva lives through his pen. Stories that get etched in his memory forever. Stories that give him a new tale of life.
Amidst the several ups and downs that Apoorva faces, amidst the turns that life takes, does he succeed in writing his film or is life waiting at the corner with a story of its own? A story through a voicemail. A voicemail that becomes synonymous to the essential and inessential tidbits of Apoorvas life
