SITA/SATI by Snehal Desai
SITA/SATI Written and directed by Snehal Desai. Part of Groundworks: New Play Series 2013
Poor Sita Desi. Her husband Apu has been killed in his prime by a slurpee machine. Now at his funeral, a wild and raucous company demand she make a choice between a public demonstration of her love for him and her own dreams. Stereotypes and myths of brown-ness are exploded, exploited, re-arranged, and re-envisioned as a woman faces a choice to become a goddess or remain mortal.
