THE SITAYANA (OR, HOW TO MAKE AN EXIT)
Written by Lavina Jadhwani
Directed by Minita Gandhi
In The Sitayana, a young princess Sita follows her new husband Ram to his kingdom in Ayodhya - only to learn that they have been banished. Refusing to abandon her partner, she joins him in exile, but finds her loyalty tested to surprising lengths. A solo piece written from a distinctly South Asian American POV, The Sitayana is part Hindu epic, part coming of age story, and part break-up play.
Recommended for ages 14 and up.
