This is a true story about Satyabati, nay, about all the Satyabatis around us who are rebels and refuse to mould themselves to fit into rigid pre-defined social norms to be 'normal.' Society labels them 'abnormal' and uses brutal force to terrorise and subjugate them. Satyabati finds her world a difficult place to live in. Her parents strive to make their maladjusted daughter feel comfortable. Satyabati has an elder brother who wishes he had a 'normal' sister and a younger brother who has never had the opportunity to be well-acquainted with his elder sister because ever since he can recollect, Satyabati has been languishing in a mental asylum. Satyabati was an all-rounder a brilliant student, equally talented in sports. Something somewhere has snapped. Her world has turned topsy-turvy and the vivacious girl has slowly and inexorably gone mad. Or has she' Who can define clearly who is mad' A society full of vices and maladies or someone who refuses to toe the line and follow the tenets of society blindly' Based on Olwen Wymark's play and adapted by Rudraprasad Sengupta, this Rangroop production is directed by Swatilekha Sengupta. The cast includes Seema Mukhopadhyay and Sohini Sengupta.
