Full Length Plays

OH SWEET SITA
A re-telling of the Ramayana set in modern day  England. Written in a modern, colloquial  freewheeling verse and inspired by the theater of Steven  Berkoff. This is a vocal text that needs to be married to a physical one.

PRINCE OF DELHI PALACE
The story of Hamlet set in a curry house. A verse play that re-imagines the Shakespearian play within the confines of an Indian restaurant in modern times.  Could be set in North America, England, West Indies, Fiji, France….  wherever you find a South Asian population out side of south asia.
