  2. The Displaced Hindu Gods Trilogy

    By Aditi Brennan Kapil.

    Product Code: DG4000

    • College and Adult
    • 3 to 5m., 3 to 4w., 1 either gender.

    This trilogy is loosely based on the Hindu trinity of Brahma the Creator, Vishnu the Sustainer and Shiva the Destroyer. The deities are displaced into contemporary immigrants in the West, creating a new cosmology for the Indian diaspora and anyone who doesn't fit in. While each play is a different style and can stand alone, they also coexist in a common universe where displacement, identity, post-colonialism and puberty are explored.
