ACE Productions presented “Broken Images” a psychological-thriller play starring Shabana Azmi.

ACE Productions presented “Broken Images”- fantastic psychological-thriller play starring Shabana Azmi,  at Sir Venkatasubbarao Concert Hall, Lady Andal School. Two sisters—one an intellectually brilliant paraplegic, the other a plodding writer— live under the same roof, dependent on each other, but inhabiting different emotional as well as linguistic worlds, English and Hindi. The arrangement is fraught not only because the sisters are involved  with the same man, but because as they respond to life together, and separately, they continually modify the image they have of each other and the world around.

The twenty-first century is an era of electronic images. From every corner of our daily  life  images fling themselves at us, arguing, accusing, wheedling, until the very essence of our private existence  seems threatened. But suppose the most deadly of these images were one’s own shattered self?

Shabana Azmi  plays both the sisters on stage and their many images, as they  morph into one  another, in one of the most challenging roles of her career.
