About the play:

Set in present day Ahmedabad, A Shaft of Sunlight looks at the marriage between a Hindu and a Muslim against the backdrop of the explosive communal politics of India.

"One of the most mesmerizing and absorbing 80 minutes I have spent in the theatre."-- Redditch Observer

Playwright Abhijat Joshi is best know for his screenwriting for Bollywood films like Lage Raho Munna Bhai (2006),3 Idiots (2009),PK (2014) and Sanju (2018). About A Shaft of Sunlight he says “My plays were immediate reactions. Having grown up in Ahmedabad, we were suddenly seeing a different city after the riots. The thinking about what it is to be a Hindu and a Muslim had suddenly changed. It had become a neatly ghettoized city, not the city I had grown up in." Joshi grew up in Ahmedabad and Nagpur.
