Me, Kash & Cruise (2008)

A roller coaster story of three Bombayites and their attempts to deal with the city’s ever changing social, civic and political landscape. The three traverse their way through the death of Indira Gandhi, the 1992 riots, the 1993 bomb blasts, the Moral Police and Bollywood mania, as well as the age of marketing and hype among other dramatic events that have shaken and influenced our city… including man made disasters such as dug up roads and festival hysteria. A fourth character, mysteriously named BOMBAY winds through the play, donning many guises and avatars – a tout/photographer, a police inspector, a waiter, a festival devotee, a marketing executive, a rioteer and a psychiatrist. Me, Kash and Cruise is the story of every Bombayite.

The play opened in May 2008 and completed over 75 shows. It toured extensively around India and abroad.

Reviews

“The play is likely to make you feel less burdened at least momentarily and a lot more accepting of this city and your situation. All the better for it, for perhaps the only thing better than a work of art that makes you ponder, is one that feels like a great leisurely conversation with a very good friend.” – Pragya Tiwari, Mumbai Mirror

“Me, Kash and Cruise remains a perky affair. This is due largely to the wonderfully spontaneous Amit Mistry, who can put Mithun to shame when it comes to disco dancing and Rajit Kapur’s comic cameo. His smart- alecky walking supermarket by the Gateway, reveler during Ganesh Chaturthi and suave events manager are priceless.” – Pronoti Dutta, Time Out, Mumbai
