The play is based on an original story by Ambarish Satwik and is scripted by Manish Srivastava, a protégé of Ram Gopal Varma. Bring Down the Walls is meant to be an exploration of freedom in modern India through the journeys of seven characters in search of their individuality. Tom Alter plays one of the characters—a man from the 1970s. The aim is to highlight contemporary issues like the concept of death, same-sex relationships, racial discrimination and artistic freedom. An original concert theatre along the lines of Broadway musicals, the two-hour rock opera uses licensed music from the Pink Floyd album The Wall.
