Season 2024-25

September 7 – September 29, 2024 | Palo alto


written and directed by Sujit Saraf
(in Hindi, with supertitles in English)
In 2014, Bollywood’s dream girl Hema Malini became Member of Parliament from Mathura and Vrindavan. When visiting a widow home in Vrindavan, she suggested that the widows remain in Bengal instead of coming to over-crowded Vrindavan. The uproar that followed involved NGOs, the BJP, Prime Minister Modi, Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and Hema Malini. This incident provides the inspiration for वृंदावन (Vrindavan), in which 12 feisty widows live in raucous celebration until a Bollywood actress arrives to disrupt their make-believe world. वृंदावन (Vrindavan) is a grand musical, juxtaposing the colorful love of Radha and Krishna with the stark existence of Vrindavan widows, told through humor and wit, the bhajans of Meera Bai and the gyrations of Bollywood songs. The play features live music and dance, spectacular sets, costumes and lights.

November 15 – November 24, 2024 | Palo Alto

Dial M For Murder

written by Frederick Knott, directed by Dhananjay Motwani
(in Hindi, with supertitles in English)
Step into the shadows of a meticulously planned murder in this edge-of-the-seat thriller where a man masterminds a chilling plot to murder his unfaithful wife for her inheritance. When his ‘perfect’ plan spirals into chaos, a web of lies and deceit is spun. This classic by Frederick Knott was also adapted in 1954 into a critically acclaimed film by Alfred Hitchcock.

Ghasiram Kotwal

written by Vijay Tendulkar, directed by Harish Agastya
(in Hindi and Marathi, with supertitles in English)
Set in the times of Nana Phadnavis (1741–1800), घासीराम कोतवाल (Ghasiram Kotwal) is political satire written as historical drama. Arriving in Pune from northern India, Ghasiram rises to great prominence through deceit, trickery and violence until his inevitable fall. Naatak’s grand production features live music and dance, and a style of presentation not seen in previous presentations of the play.

March 14 – April 6, 2025 | Campbell

Vilayat Mahal

written and directed by Anush Moorthy
(in Hindi and English, with supertitles in English)
December 1971, a cold wintry morning, Hazrat Nizamuddin Railway Station, Delhi: a woman walks into the first-class waiting room with her family and claims to be the legitimate descendant of Wajid Ali Shah, the last nawab of Oudh. The family has everything – Great Danes, opulent carpets, potted palms, and a retinue of servants in livery – except the recognition they seek. Inspired by a true story in the New York Times, विलायत महल (Vilayat Mahal) is a tragicomedy spanning four decades that re-imagines the life of the mysterious begum and her quest for recognition.

June 13 – June 29, 2025 | Palo Alto


written and directed by Vikram Ramanarayanan
(in English)
In 1998, a woman named Monica Besra was cured of a stomach tumor through a miracle supposedly wrought by Mother Teresa, setting in motion a chain of events that culminated with her canonization in the Catholic Church. Based loosely on this incident, Blessed is a tale of that miracle and the cynical men and women who engineered it.
