Ekantham is a theatrical adaptation of a short story `The Bet’ by Anton Chekov. Contemporary Malayalam playwright and theatre person PJ Unnikrishnan has adapted the story and Sreejith Ramanan, actor/ director, has given it an onstage presentation maintaining an ethos specific to the Indian context. Ekantham reminds us to get rid of redundant and conventional practices. Death sentence and life sentence are equally immoral. Here is a lawyer who chooses the second. The play takes us to new realms of life and its resultant loneliness and how one renews oneself.
