Productions

Tea & Pickle Productions is an independent production company focused on amplifying diverse voices to theatre, film and tv — grounded in authentic storytelling.

We are excited to shape how we tell stories that are culturally accurate, authentic, inclusive and devoid of stereotypes, by bringing diverse voices that reflect global human stories.

BROKEN IMAGES is a masterpiece of self-delusion and self-worth, taking a cutting look at the Indian literary establishment, the desire for fame, and the need to win at all costs.

When Manjula, a mediocre Indian writer gets international fame for a book she wrote in English, and not her native tongue, she gets flak from her literary community, and is questioned without warning by her ‘Image’ to unearth the scandal behind her sudden rise to fame.

It is a fascinating look at one woman’s response to a lifetime of being second best. It is a mind boggling journey down the rabbit hole of ego and self-preservation. Written by one of India’s most revered playwrights, Girish Karnad.
