Can their friendship survive?Seven friends who were a tightly-knit group in St. Xavier’s College from 1979-1984 have gathered at the Kashid beach house of Raveena and Sanjay Mehra, because of the death of an eighth friend, Jojo. Will the seven friends come to terms with the death of their friend-and more importantly, themselves-in the course of this long and emotional evening together?Class Of ’84 is a roller-coaster ride about friendship, filled with pathos and humour.The Play opened in January 2003 and has completed over 200 shows since then, making it one of the longest running Indian-English plays of all time.

It made you laugh, it made you cry. And amidst all that, it revived old memories of college life.
The script reflected the modern Indian ethos, with all eight characters distilled to near perfection and easily identifiable as someone all of us know. This characterization immediately established a rapport between the audience and the players on stage who were able to fling the sense of fun they were having right across the room.

It is hard to believe that Class of ’84 is Rahul da Cunha’s debut play as a writer. Harder still to believe that words can be handled with such precision.
Da Cunha’s play is about the intangible tricky thing called human relationships. There’s a tight plot with lines that come fast and bang on time. While the play makes you think a little and wonder how much you really know your friends, it certainly doesn’t lose the shining quality of entertainment that is etched in every aspect of the production.

A toast to friendship of the rare precious kind that allows you to bare your souls.

Great acting, excellent light and sound, a beautiful theme song combined with innumerable lines of wit and barb that kept popping and loads and loads of real-life sentimentality - the 80-minutes long play kept the thousand strong audience at the open-air stage truly regaled.

The premise of the play offered potential for feel-good banter and a dash of intrigue. But writer-director Rahul da Cunha looks beyond sitcom banter and suspense. And if he does that with commendable poise, that’s thanks to some brilliantly etched characters which are the mainstay of this Rage production.
