Actor-educator, writer and community worker, Anu Yadav ('Capers) shifts between multiple characters in her latest solo piece, Meena's Dream. Set to a live, original score combining South Indian classical music with jazz and indie folk, the play tells the story of Meena, a nine-year-old Indian-American girl who wishes her mother, Aisha, could get the medicine she needs. Her plight is complicated when, at night, the Hindu God Lord Krishna himself appears, entreating her help in his war against the worry machine. Patrick Crowley (In Pursuit of Me) directs this world premiere at the Forum Theatre. Learn More
