Sea Wall

Mumbai-based National Centre for Performing Arts’s latest production of the, titled Sea Wall, features Jim Sarbh as the protagonist Alex. He speaks directly to the audience about his wife, his daughter, his father-in-law’s daughter, photography and the bottom of the sea.

He seems a natural, happy, and engaging person in whom mind flicker questions about belief and religion. Alex’s contentment soon fades away into deep and heart-breaking grief, which seems fitting for the post-pandemic world. Based on Simon Stephens’ critically acclaimed script, the play is directed by Bruce Guthrie, Head of Theatre at NCPA. On March 6 and 7 on BookMyShow. Entry: Rs 300.
