Written & Directed by Ms.Kanu Priya, ‘On the Astral Plane’ is a satire on the nouveaux spiritual lifestyle, which is becoming a fad in the society. It is the story of a very successful businessman Raghuvender Rathod, a self-made man and his wife, Romilla Rathod who has traveled from being a homemaker to a kitty party socialite and now an amateur Angel Tarot reader. Raghuvender is appalled by the involvement of each of his family members in some of the other New Age Spiritual modality is it; his son and daughter-in-law who are Osho Swami and Chakra Healer; his mother (Rani Devi) who is a Sai devotee and even his maternal uncle (Ramendra) who is an astrologer. He is amazed as he finds their household servant; Ramvati is also involved in Ramdev’s yoga. Problems start when Romilla’s first client of the tarot reading asks a question which her Indian mindset does not permit.
The play all about understands the impact of these spiritual modalities in a normal upper-class household setup.
This play will make you laugh in your seats as you contemplate the truth within their façade.
