A thought-provoking play that explores the limits of one's threshold for pain and loss, PRISM spotlights the struggle between progression and development, and erodes a nation's heritage and culture, through a storyline that will resonate with audiences given the parallel in the current state of affairs locally.

Aman, an urban city development official, starts to question his work of demolishing old historical buildings to make way for new cityscapes. Faced with the task of informing the residents of the impending demolition of the city's oldest heritage 'The Surrounding City', Aman experiences the wrath of the city, despair of her dwellers and confronts his personal ambivalence about the price of material gains.
