Kendonians is a play that depicts the suffering of the people caught in an illusionary world of brands, materialism, hypocrisy, and unemployment.

‘Damanna’, the protagonist of the play, a simply Tea stall owner, living happily in his village with his family, enjoying the cultural and religious harmony, was allured by a visa agent with a high salary to go to a country called Kendonia. Only after reaching the strange land, he realizes that he is duped, and he can’t come back. Once in an unknown land, of no return, he had no choice but to work like a monkey in a Circus Company. The events that turn out there, the people he meets, make him realize the irony of this developmental world.

Adding to the simple yet deep story line, the characters, the scenes, the set and properties add a whole new dimension to the understanding of the play. Each of these, individually contribute to the wholeness of the play.

This play has been performed at various occasions  in languages, Tulu, Kannada, Konkani and Malayalam winning hearts of numerous people, helping them to see  the mirror image of progress.
