Rape, Regret, and Retribution (R3) portrays a horrific event that involves the lives of two
ordinary Indian families of different social strata. The portrayal and ramification of a life-changing event is at the heart of this play that unfolds in the main character’s dream. The main character , Jiten, living a life of conflicted self-interests and lack of tradition, leaves his wife, Karuna, and family in a small village in West Bengal to move to the big city, Calcutta, where he lives as he pleases. Not long thereafter, he becomes the center of a horrible crime, the rape and death of a young girl, Meena, destroying two families, the Banerjee and Mehta families, who come from completely different social strata.
