Naatak Presents a grand Musical AMAVASYA
About the Play
The princess Amavasya is devastatingly beautiful: black as night. Or she is so hideous that a glimpse of her milky-white face sends the victim into a three-day slumber. No one knows, because she is hidden behind a mask. What will her people see on the day she uncovers her face? Written entirely in verse and performed with music, dance, spectacular sets and costumes, AMAVASYA is a fairytale for dark-skinned grown-ups. And perhaps light-skinned ones.
The play is a Knight Foundation Grant winner. It features a unique combination of theater, music and dance - theater by NAATAK, live music composed and performed by Nachiketa Yakkundi and group, and original dance choreographed by Rasika Kumar and performed by Abhinaya Dance Company.

Written by Frederick Knott
Adapted and Directed by Mukund Marathe
This classic by Frederick Knott has the perfect recipe for a suspense thriller - a blind woman all alone at home, with a doll full of heroin that her husband unknowingly left behind, and three con-men who want it. The men attempt to trick the blind woman into giving up the doll, but as she becomes aware of the grave danger she is in, she starts building a plan to handle the intruders.
