East West Players (EWP) in partnership with San Francisco’s EnActe Arts and New York City’s Hypokrit Productions, is proud to present the world premiere of The Sitayana, 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), on Friday, May 14, 2021.
The Sitayana is an artful transposition of the Hindu epic The Ramayana told from Sita’s point of view. Part epic tale, part coming of age story, The Sitayana is the ultimate breakup play. Audiences will be able to choose between three different incarnations of Sita from whom to hear their stories which along the way upend traditional gender norms and subvert idealized views of femininity.
