  10. The Displaced Hindu Gods Trilogy

    • College and Adult

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. Learn More
