When opportunities are within plain sight, what chains us down? Is it our flaws? Is it the burden of relationships? Or is it all a ventriloquist act?

This play follows the story of 5 individuals who have been awarded the opportunity to break the ‘unbreakable’ Uri, each finding their own motivation to complete this task to find fame and glory. The intangibility of success is what makes it special. But what is success you ask? To each, their own.

Breaking a Uri may be all fun and games, but who is the real winner?
Will anyone dare to let their guard down? 
Will they be willing to make way for new bonds to blossom?
Will everyone take the high road? 
Or will they all fall into a rabbit hole?

Uriyadi answers these questions, poking at human behavioral traits in our current society, revealing who has the last laugh.

Uriyadi is a traditional and famous game that is celebrated in many places as a part of Pongal celebration. The game is similar to "Smash a Pinata" and is a fun and amusing game. 

How to Play Uriyadi?

→ An earthen pot is hanged on the top at a height of 30 - 40 feet from the ground.
→ The pot is decorated beautifully and filled with water, ghee, eatables or gifts.
→ Participants would be blindfolded and the game organisers will make them stand at a distance from this pot.
→ People around would misdirect the participant from reaching the hanging pot.
→ But still the blindfolded participants should reach near and break the pot with the long sticks provided.
→ One who breaks the pot will be declared as winner. The winner can take all the gifts in the broken pot.
