Details: Broken Images is a psychological thriller by acclaimed Indian contemporary playwright Girish Karnad. This is a one woman show starring Neeraja Ramjee, and directed by award-winning actor, director, and dramaturge Clinton Walker.
The production is a masterpiece of self-delusion and self-worth, taking a cutting look at the Indian literary establishment, the desire for fame, and the need to win at all costs. When Manjula, a mediocre Indian writer gets international fame for a book she wrote in English, and not her native tongue, she gets flak from her literary community, and is questioned without warning by her ‘Image’ to unearth the scandal behind her sudden rise to fame.
Girish Karnad is an acclaimed contemporary Indian playwright and a Rhodes Scholar. He is also an actor, director and screen writer. He was conferred the Padma Bhushan by the President of India, and has been honoured with the Bharatiya Jnanpith, India’s highest literary award.
Neeraja Ramjee (Manjula, producer) is a New York trained actor, and studied acting at New York Film Academy, and the Acting Studio in New York and improvisation at the Upright Citizens Brigade (UCB). Her recent credits include roles in theatre and film/TV, including Horrible Parent (June Havoc Theatre, NY), Bubbling (Beckman Theatre (ATA), NY), High Quality Friends (Arthur Seelen Theatre, NY), and Tremulous (Producer’s Club Theatre, NY).
