PLAY The Tricky Part & All The Rage

Shirley Mistry tells you about Martin Moran’s plays — The Tricky Part and All the Rage

The Tricky Part and All The Rage, Martin Moran’s one-man-shows, produced by Poorna Jagannathan, are all set to hit the city. Both plays draw inspiration from personal experiences, as The Tricky Part is Martin’s account of sexuality, spirituality and the mystery of human experiences, whereas All The Rage is a another piece that complements the former, and is well acclaimed.

The plays are directed by Seth Barrish and are full of complexity, honesty and surprising humour — leaving you deeply engaged with the subject of sexual abuse, the focal point of both performances. Martin’s shows are known to leave audiences transformed and engaged with a subject that has been previously inaccessible to most. Producer Poorna Jagannathan, who also produced another poignant play this year, titled Nirbhaya, hopes that these two plays will draw attention and conversation to sexual violence against boys. “ Today, one in every two boys in India are sexually abused. This means that half of the boys in India are exposed to unwanted sexual interaction. Although it’s mind-boggling, the culture of shame surrounding male sexual abuse prevents survivors from seeking help or healing. Most of the time, violence is internalised and cycles of abuse just continue. While we are trying to combat sexual violence against women, we remain relatively blind to sexual violence against boys and men. I’m hoping these plays can pry open this difficult, yet vital conversation, in the same way Nirbhaya did for women. I strongly believe that ending sexual violence against boys is the key to ending the cycles of violence.”
