I enjoyed it more after it was over because I really had to think about it. At first I was thrown off by what I perceived to be overacting. Later, I learned that this type of acting is common in Asian theater. What intrigued me the most is the honesty of the main character and the women that all played on person on stage. It was my first Indian play and I am glad that I went.
Quotes & Highlights
“[One of Delhi’s] most outstanding productions…not to be missed.” —The Hindu
Theatre & Television Associates (New Delhi)
Directed by Amal Allana
Born into prostitution and a caste system that held down even the most ambitious, Nati Binodini (1863–1941) defied all odds to become a leading figure on the Bengali stage. Based on the title character’s autobiography, this work from Theatre & Television Associates of New Delhi, created and directed by Amal Allana, shows how strength of character can carry one woman far beyond the circumstances of her birth. Performed in Hindi with English surtitles.
