The play marked the directorial debut of actress and screenwriter Kalki Koechlin, who had previously written and acted in several stage productions in India. Development of the play began in 2014, when Koechlin wrote a four-page conversation between Death and an old woman who is in a strange surreal space, about to die but unwilling to exit the world. She further worked on the script of the play in 2015. In an interview with Mumbai Mirror she said, “Last year, when I was unemployed for six months, I started fleshing out the story. It turned into a comedy on life and death”. The play stars Neil Bhoopalam as the incarnation of Death, Sheeba Chaddha as the protagonist Mrs Anna Nil, an old woman who is on her deathbed and confronts Death. Jim Sarbh and Tariq Vasudeva play supporting roles of Nil's grandson and a doctor in the play. On the casting process Koechlin said, “There's no role for me. I can't play an old woman, can I? So I just went to my ideal cast and fortunately for me,[...] gave me the nod after a reading.”
