Theatrical Presentation: Many Mothers, Many Fathers

Room Festival Stage
Description: 
Sanskrit texts from ancient India tell the story of King Chitraketu of the Surasena Dynasty. The mighty monarch fell into depression when he could not have a child as heir to the throne until a sadhu, a holy man, made that casual but divine visit and offered some advice. A son was born but this triggered a vehement jealousy into the hearts of his step mothers, culminating into a tragedy which eventually terminates into a dynamic resolve. This entertaining theatrical performance, with its universal message of vice and virtue, sends emotions soaring high only to come to a soft spiritual landing in the end.
