This stage play by Nishi Chawla reworks a myth from the well-known Indian epic, The Mahabharata, in contemporary language, context, and situations. Imaginative sequences are added to connect the mythical Draupadi with modern women.

Director Sri Mirajkar takes this further to raise interesting questions. Is it different for women now, after so many centuries, in terms of social position, sexual self-expression, abuse, objectification, education and sexual orientation? How vast is the change?

The play is fascinating in the way it draws on well known mythology and imagery and the thoughts it leaves behind…a MUST SEE! You have SIX show timings to choose from.

ASHA for Women is delighted to be associated with this event which resonates closely with its mission of empowering oppressed and abused women.

 

Director Sridhar Mirajkar (Sri) is a seasoned stage, TV and film actor apart from being an entrepreneur in IT Consulting.

Playwright Nishi Chawla is a faculty member of Thomas Edison State University, New Jersey, with five published collections of poetry, two novels, and five plays to her name.
