Deepali Gupta – “United States v. Gupta”

NACL, in partnership with JACK, presents a work-in-progress showing of Deepali Gupta‘s new work, UNITED STATES V. GUPTA.

United States v. Gupta is a musical tragedy that attempts to tell the story of Rajat Gupta. In the summer of 2012, Gupta—a former head of McKinsey—was tried, convicted, and incarcerated for insider trading. More than a decade removed from the events of his trial, his youngest daughter, Deepali Gupta, is presenting her own version—in collaboration with director Caitlin Sullivan.

What if the courtroom were a theater? What if a juror burst into song?

Working with materials that are transcribed, remembered, and imagined, Deepali writes a play that maps a history. And yes—she’s playing herself. On Friday, September 22nd at NACL in Highland Lake, NY, she will share excerpts and drafts of songs from the piece, as well as dramaturgical context and insights into her collaborative process. United States v. Gupta will be produced in November at JACK in collaboration with New Georges.

Tickets are by donation (Suggested $25) available at the NACL website.
