Displaced Hindu Gods

A Trilogy of Plays by Aditi Brennan Kapil
October 5–27, 2013

Proudly Sponsored by maharajatext 

"You should see these plays. Great writing, great direction, great design, great acting... they all have a smart sense of humor driving them, which makes them entertaining as well as thought-provoking."

         - Matthew Everett, Twin Cities Daily Planet

En Español

A festival of three world premieres based on the trinity of Hindu deities- Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiva- each displaced into the contemporary Western world. This theatrical marathon features a variety of styles: a stand-up comedy routine, a girl-gang thriller, and a post-colonial fantasy. While each play stands alone, they co-exist in a common universe where displacement, identity, immigration, and puberty are explored through the lenses of creation, survival, and destruction.

The three shows are cast with seven actors (some in multiple roles), designed by one team, and can be seen singly on week nights or as a marathon on Saturdays and Sundays in a never-before-seen configuration of the Alan Page Auditorium. Food and beverages (both alcoholic and non) will be available for purchase at the theatre throughout the entire run.
