About the Play

Mataji, born on the banks of the Ganga, has a simple gift to offer to the world: a loving hug. Over two decades, she has traveled to sixty-five countries, hugging thousands of devotees in one sitting, sending them into raptures through the transmission of pure bliss that accompanies her hugs. Her followers on five continents regard her as Krishna incarnate. Then, on her sixteenth visit to California, she confronts a devotee she cannot satisfy. Through him, she discovers much about her powers, and the world discovers much about her.
