The colorful Hindu religion, the passionate story of a love triangle, and the folk tale of a horse-headed man have captured our imaginations this past month as we’ve been rehearsing Mistake of the Goddess.
Now we add in colorful Indian textiles, the inspired music of Paul Amiel, the gorgeous sculptural elements crafted by Matt Cotten, and we know this is going to be a stunning way to open our Season of Lust!
Bring your sense of wonder when you join us for this beautiful play by India’s premier playwright. You will be richly rewarded for doing so…
