9781479347445: Closet Land: The Stage Play

Radha Bharadwaj's powerful, critically acclaimed masterpiece has been performed all over the world. This tense psychological thriller revolves around the arrest and interrogation of an author who is suspected of communicating subversive messages through her children's stories. Her captor mixes subtle psychological cat-and-mouse games with brutal torture that is not for the squeamish. Bharadwaj is able to create moving and riveting drama with only two characters performing on a single set. This stage play is adapted from Bharadwaj's award-winning screenplay for the cult classic film that Bharadwaj also directed. Iconic author Kate Millett called Bharadwaj "a very brilliant filmmaker" and devoted an entire chapter to Closet Land in her book, The Politics of Cruelty. Kathleen Murphy, writing in Film Comment, called Closet Land "a harrowing Alice-in-Wonderland descent into the darkness behind the brain to discover 'the soul's true face.'" Dann Gire wrote in the Daily Herald that "Closet Land uses its provocative premise to delve into a passionate, daring and literate celebration of the human capacity to imagine the most powerful, unconquerable weapon against the force of oppression." "Horror? Silence of the Lambs has nothing on this," wrote Bill Cosford in the Miami Herald.
