Sex, Morality, And, Censorship is a seduction of ideas exploring one of the most controversial issues of our time - morality and censorship. The play flashes back to the early'70s when Vijay Tendulkar's classic, Sakharam Binder, set off a storm of controversy in the theatre scene. The stage censor board came down heavily on the script, and the play was attacked by sections of society. The unusual story of Sakharam Binder, the parallel world of tamasha, and the amazing spirit of the '70s all make up an exciting mix of theatre, memory, live music, dance, and video. The show provokes challenges, entertains, and asks the question - who says NO!? And why?
