If you can’t reign in a Lion or a Nuclear Bomb, it is better not to create it, is the message that the show deduces from Panchatantra stories. From ancient times, the Panchatantra tales have regaled children and adults alike with a moral at the end of every story. The present series is based on the Sanskrit original. A king, worried that his three sons are without the wisdom to live in a world of wile and guile, asks a learned man called Vishnu Sharman to teach them the ways of the world. Since his wards are dimwits, Vishnu Sharman decides to pass on wisdom to them in the form of stories.

The play explores how gender is constructed and reinforced in real and virtual public spaces. Cyber space becomes a new public space in which gender plays itself out: Why does Nikhil play an online game as a female avatar? Why does Tanya create an anonymous Facebook profile and what does she do with it? What happens when Sachin’s fighting video goes viral? The play looks at the collisions of real and virtual spaces and the drama that unfolds. The absurd, funny and sometimes painful episodes connect through hyperlinks to a fast-paced ride into the violence of gender construction in teenage years.  To see Keep Calm and #ashtag children must be accompanied by a parent or adult guardian for the duration of the play.
Strictly for 14+ : The content of the play addresses sensitive and real issues of teenagers about gender construction and how it is played out in public and private spaces.
