About the Play

Madhavi recounts a tale from the Mahabharat. Munikumar Galav must fulfill a promise made to his guru, while the great king Yayati must live up to his reputation for generosity. Both achieve their ends through Madhavi, who lives in these two worlds of male pride, blessed with the ability to regain her youth at will, and the promise that she will give birth to great kings.
