Jun 12 – Jun 25, Palo Alto

written by Girish Karnad, directed by Harish Agastya
(in Hindi, with supertitles in English)
HAYAVADAN (“horse-face”) is Girish Karnad’s best known classic, and one of the most frequently staged plays in India. Padmini is married to the wise Devadatt and attracted to the well-built Kapil, but the love triangle is turned upside down when the men’s heads and bodies are miraculously switched. Based on The Transposed Heads, Thomas Mann’s re-telling of a fable from Kathasaritasagar, HAYAVADAN is a tale of unrequited love and imperfection. Our presentation of the play will be grand, with original music compositions, choreographed fight sequences, stylized movements, imaginative costumes and make-up.

Cubberley Theater, 4120 Middlefield Road, Palo Alto
run-time: 100 minutes
