The play is set in the times subsequent to 8th November 2016, when three Shakesfear fans have been deprived of the demonetization policy which ends up in the following conversation:
Scene I Act I:
A: How dost thou, get money from the ATM?
B: Methinks, thou hast to tarry for hours to get money…
A: Thou thinkest ’tis such an easy job? Methinks not; Mine pockets hast only ₹150 and I know not how to pass this week, without shopping and eating.
B: Fie o’ you. Me hast three ₹1000 notes 😛
A: I prithee. Thou hast money, but still thou is helpless. I give thee my patience, to stand in the long ques in front of banks to exchange old notes.
B: In sooth, take a look at my phone.
B: Me son, Z quoth, that students stood for 3 hours in front of the ATM and got nought, ‘mongst ’tis.
A: Wherein happen’d ’tis?
B: Z’s University.
Scene I Act II:
C: Mr.A, come hither.
A: Yes my Lord C.
C: What news thou hast for us?
A: Lord ’tis he who hast done this to thou Lord, ’tis he (pointing towards a man’s face in the front page of the newspaper)
C: Me knowest, that everyone shall suffer. Thou shalt recharge thy metro card for ₹5000, as me not knowest where to spend the old notes.
A: Bethink oneself my Lord. ₹5000 for metro card? Too much of an investment.
C: Quoth I, do.
A: Yes my Lord.
C: I shalt bethink myself, and thou hast to find new ways of spending old notes, rather than metro cards.
A: My Lord, methought, we could go to Qutub Minar. Monuments accept’d old notes for a week.
C: Let us spend the notes there, today evening.
Scene II Act I:
A,B and C go to Qutub Minar, and exchange a ₹1000 note, after a brawl with the ticket vendor, who doesn’t agree to take in the note for only three tickets.
Ticket vendor: Buy 8 or more tickets, else give me change.
A: Sir, me hast only one ₹1000 note.
Ticket vendor: Quick you cream faced loon.
A: Tarry a bit and mind your words.
B: Mr.A, ’tis family behind thee hast five members, thou canst buy five more tickets, and get change from them.
A: Good idea my lord.
A hands over the money and buys 5 more tickets, which they sell it to the family standing behind them in the que. One ₹1000 note is spent and exchanged.
Scene III Act I:
The same story continues even after two weeks. Money is spent for useless purposes.
A: How is thou son Z?
B: Me sends money through post to Z everyday. Z spends a lot, maketh me poor, in ’tis fiscal deficit.
A: Me hast not touch’d or seen ₹2000 note yet.
B: Thou not shout. Keep calm. Me saw one, touch’d one with me hands but dost not have one.
C comes waving a new purple coloured note.
C: Here is the first one thou art gonna touch Mr.A.
A: Thou didst it, my Lord. H’as got the swag.
C: Laziness, do not become a man.
A: Lord, me knowest, ’twas B who stood in the long ques to get cash. Thou art lazy, like me.
C: Thou art unfit for any place except but hell. Thou DEMON!!! Thou***!!
The play ends!!!
With lots and lots of errors,
A ShakesFear student ❤
