East West Players (EWP) in partnership with San Francisco’s EnActe Arts and New York City’s Hypokrit Productions, is proud to present three unique virtual world premieres of The Sitayana (Or, How To Make An Exit), by Lavina Jadhwani (?Time Out Chicago’s “Best Next Generation Stage Director”), and directed by Reena Dutt (Dir. Antigone, Presented by the Girls of St. Catherine’s – Sacred Fools).
The Sitayana is a?n artful transposition of the Hindu epic The Ramayana ?told from Sita’s point of view. Part epic tale, part coming of age story, The S?itayana is the ultimate breakup play. Audiences attending the livestreamed viewings September 25 – October 17, 2021 will be given the choice of one of three unique incarnations of Sita from whom they will hear her story (Amar Chitra Sita, Sita’s Mehndi Party, and Sita’s Slumber Party) which questions traditional gender roles, subverts idealized views of femininity, and ultimately centers Sita as a hero within her own epic journey. Each of the versions will be available for video-on-demand viewing beginning September 20th, 2021 through Sunday, October 17.
