About The Play

A Wife of Buddha weaves together the ancient legend of Yasodhara, the woman Siddharta abandoned to follow a path to spiritual enlightenment, and the modern-day story of Carla Medina, a sculptor in San Francisco who is depicting the tale of Sidhartha and Yasodhara in her work. When Carla’s husband, a Korean-German adoptee, discovers his birth father is alive and is a Buddhist monk in Korea, the marriage falters, leading Carla to question her own path in life.

A Wife of Buddha is written by Lisa Kang, an actor, educator, and playwright based in the Bay Area. The play is one of three scripts selected by Naatak as part of its script-writing contest Inkpot@Naatak.
