The blindspot 

Synopsis:

 

This 40-min play is a collection of short acts on gender, generational, sexuality, affinity, halo, and other conscious and unconscious biases prevalent in the workplace, which are after all a microcosm of the society we live in. The staccato nature of the narratives presents before the audience a realistic portrayal of biased thinking that they may relate to and reflect upon for learning followed by a facilitated discussion on the same theme.

Directed by: Priyanka Banerjee

Synopsis:

Millennial Max is the story of Millennials, Gen-x and Boomers. It stretches into workplaces designed by Boomers and Gen-x in the Industrial era which propogated cultures of commitment, decorum, managing unprecedented change and performance built by generations of Nation Builders. Its also a journey into the bewildered minds of the millennials seeking more opportunities, equality and empowerment. Its about the magic that happens when all these cohorts work in tandem. Differently similar but committed to the same goal

Woman Phenomenal

Synopsis:

Moving beyond age and socio-economic boundaries, this play presents a realistic and balanced portrayal of the diverse lives lead by Indian women using 11 female characters with their respective male counterparts as examples. Beaten but not lost, vulnerable but not broken, each of these women challenge the audience's mental stereotypes. They depict the woman's inherent power to triumph her circumstances and more importantly, survive. A must-watch for all HR & OD professionals, this play is an eye-opening experience that will help augment Gender Sensitization and Gender Diversity agendas within organisations. It can be followed by a useful facilitated dialogue on Busting Stereotypes on Women.

Come Out Come Out Wherever you are!

Synopsis:

One-third of LGBT employees lie about their personal lives at work. Leogirl Productions' Come out, come out wherever you are! is an inside look into the lives of the LGBTQIA+ community through the lense of four individuals: Ameya, Madura, Ashi and Rana. In monologues addressed directly to you, the audience, they discuss their insecurities, dilemmas and the special challenge of bringing their whole selves to work. Understanding and Embracing Diversity is crucial to creating a connect with diverse audiences and managing talent in the 21st century, Come Out, Come Out Wherever You Are! brings us closer to an often-overlooked dimension of Diversity & Inclusion: embracing alternate sexualities and gender identities.

The musical

An older woman grappling with feeling unimportant before the younger lot. The perennially right Boss who is both the problem and the solution. Each, a character of the corporate world, is a reminder of such issues as feudalism, nepotism, sycophancy, objectification, or simply, The Corporate Shabang. Step into their challenges and dilemmas to the foot-tapping music of a live band and an all singing-dancing cast. This 50-min musical, puts the spotlight, literally, onto conversations we prefer closeted.

SHava! Shava! We ARE From Gurgava!

Synopsis:

This play is the story of the Taneja Family -based in Gurgaon- rooted in tradition and culture they are proud of- like any Indian family. This 3 Act Play showcases their regular Banter within closed doors -full of stereotypes, prejudices, Biases so deeply embedded that they are blissfully unaware of both - their assumptions being non validated as well as that their views may be damaging to themselves and to the Society. The blissful unawareness trance is broken- one day when Big Brother Madan Taneja arrives from Canada.  The Taneja Family could be any of us, in fact most of us, and located anywhere other than Gurgaon. The bias is operative in the title itself.

This play is the story of three female colleagues, Sameera, Swati and Meeta, as narrated by their mutual friend Ambika.
