Having presented socially and politically poignant theatre for years now, Arvind Gaur, along with Mahesh Bhatt and Asmita Theatre Group, presents The Last Salute, yet another riveting story that explores the context of the Gulf crisis and the US intervention, which has been examined, critique and questioned to a great extent. Till now, Gaur has only worked on plays that narrate events that have impacted India. This time around, he explores events across the international borders.

An adaptation of the book The Last Salute to President Bush by journalist Muntadhar Al Zaidi, the play explores emotions, talks about world peace and how political orders of the day affect the common man, Gaur says.

This evident sharpness has come to a sickening level, where influential countries and leaders, Gaur says, are creating unnecessary issues when none are required. “It’s groups like ours that show audiences a different side to things. Through the story of The Last Salute, we attempt to give a holistic perspective about the events that unfolded. Whether you agree or not, it doesn’t matter. What’s important is that you are willing to listen to what we have to say and then think about what we have said,” he says.
