Marx My Word is Pierrot’s Troupe’s latest play. It is set in 1980 – Rajiv Gandhi has just decided to enter politics after the death of his brother, Sanjay – a turning point not only in Indian politics, but in Indian history itself. In England, a diverse group of Indian graduate students, along with their English Professor and a European woman student, who both feel very strongly about India, meet to discuss and dissect the future of our country – to make their separate and passionate claims on the vision of what India should and will become – truly.

Marx My Word is a searing and witty look not at ancient Indian history, but the history of today’s India: What happens to those people, and their visions, their passions? Do they have the inner strength to remain true to them?

Succinctly speaking, Marx My Word is a play with history, a play of history – today’s history.
