Jos Chirammal Biography in the Works, Information Sought

Its nine years since Jos Chirammal’s untimely death in 2006 at the age of 53. The Maverick play-maker was a beacon of serious theatre and took theatre to the masses in Kerala. Jos Chirammal Smaraka Samiti now plans to bring out a comprehensive biography of the path-breaking play-maker.

Unfortunately there is hardly any documented data in existence on the life and works of the late theatre great. The samiti requests all those who have associated with Jos Chirammal to share their memories of him, and any sort of information, with them.

Read the Press Release:

The Jos Chirammal Smaraka Samithi, the organisation formed to uphold the memory of Jos Chirammal, the path-breaking play-maker of Kerala, is taking the initiative to bring out his comprehensive biography.

Since hardly any documentary data regarding the life and work of the late theatre person exists in a documented format, the volume will have to draw upon the memories of those individuals who have associated with Jos Chirammal during his career. As Jos Chirammal had travelled widely through the length and breadth of Kerala, as well as outside the State, carrying the message of serious theatre like a beacon, it would be highly unpractical to find and meet personally with every individual who has had the occasion to associate with him.

In that context, the Samiti is sending out a request to those who have associated with Jos Chirammal as well as his friends and acquaintances to cooperate with the Samiti’s endeavour by sharing their memories of the late theatre person. Any sort of information including written down memories and photographs along with the letters and articles written by him, if any, would be welcome, according to the Samiti.

The Samiti has requested the information and data to be sent either by post or email to the addresses given below before September 30, 2015.
