‘One More Exorcist’ will go on the floor some 37 years after it was first staged; Shekher says it is a parody on horror films and touched on issues that affected people.
The play, a spoof was written at a time when the English film’ Exorcist’ was playing to full houses in the city. The script was localised and had a good run in the city and outside.
Shekher says drama enthusiasts asked him to revisit the play and stage it now, after he revived another old and popular play, ‘ Crazy Thieves in Palavakkam.’
