One of the boldest Play to come out of India

Directed by Vinita Sud Belani
Produced by Pradeep Gupta

Tenth century, Malla kingdom.

King Okkaak is the most powerful ruler of the region. But the clouds of war are gathering as rumors of a concerted attack from several neighboring kingdoms abound. A self-righteous but nervous Senate compels the heirless and impotent King to give his consent to Niyog, wherein he sends his reluctant Queen out into a horde of hopefuls to choose a surrogate husband for one night. Three lives are irrevocably altered as the sun sets and the moon rises.

What will dawn bring for each of them?

Live vocals and the fluidity of classical dance catapult this poignant tale into a multi-dimensional feast for the senses.

Shows in San Ramon (June 20, 21) and San Francisco (July 11, 12) also.
