Parahita Pashana

The play is a farcical black comedy revolving around the Venkararamanaiah family, but now composed of insane homicidal maniacs. The hero, Madhava, is a drama critic who must deal with his crazy, homicidal family and local police, as he debates whether to go through with his recent promise to marry the girl he loves.

His family includes two spinster aunts, Seethamma and Akkayyamma, who have taken to murdering lonely old men by poisoning them with a glass of home-made wine (sogade berina sharabattu) with arsenic, 'just a pinch' of cyanide; a brother, Krishna who believes he is The Governor General, who digs locks for the Himalaya Canal in the cellar of the home (which then serve as graves for the aunts' victims; he thinks that they died of Yellow Fever and a murderous brother, Vishakantha, who has received plastic surgery performed by an alcoholic accomplice, Dr. Karunanidhi to conceal his identity.

The original English classic written by Joseph Kesserling has been adapted to Kannada by Prof. B. Chandrasekhar. The play's duration is 90 minutes.
