"Sammy" is the dramatic story of Mahatma Gandhi, told by an ensemble of actors in a modern and exciting manner.
Led by a lively debate between Mohandas, the man, and the irrepressible Mahatma in him, the play highlights Gandhi’s relationships and how he changed everyone he touched.
The play aims to bring alive a man whose influence changed politics forever (and set in motion the journey of others like Nelson Mandela and Martin Luther King). The play is important not just as a powerful piece of theatre, but is specially relevant because of the times we live in, where the Mahatma’s creed of non materialism and non violence is sorely needed in an age of terrorism and consumerism.
