SOUTH ASIAN THEATER FESTIVAL
Saturday, December 12 – Sunday, December 13, 2009
Back by popular demand! The South Asian Theater Festival (SATF) returns with two new plays with guest directors, Ronobir Lahiri (Los Angeles, USA) and Usha Ganguli (Kolkata, India). Nobel Prize-winning author Rabindranath Tagore wrote his play Red Oleander in 1924. This parable tells the story of Nandini, a beautiful woman who arrives to liberate a soulless mining town ruled by an oppressive and antagonistic King. S.M. Azhar Aalam’s play, Chehre, tells a story of five women – a grandmother, her daughter, and her three granddaughters – all victims of circumstance who react differently to cope with their troubled lives. Please note that there is no late seating for this performance. Latecomers will be seated in the balcony or at the discretion of house management.
