Thought-provoking, Epic, Great acting, Funny, Absorbing

See it if you want to get your feet wet with South Asian stories told in a way that is accessible to everyone and especially fun if you already know.

Intelligent, Entertaining, Absorbing, Riveting, Great acting

See it if You enjoy a one actor show where she pulls every character in her story to life and tells the story well. She maintains a great connection.

Don't see it if You are not interested in listening to someone’s life story. She covers at least 30 years and misses some details. It’s not all believable

Great acting, Enchanting, Absorbing, Relevant, Resonant

See it if You’re a feminist. This is a really well told Indian story/fable that highlights so well how hard it is for women no matter the culture/age.

Don't see it if You dislike one person shows or if you have no interest in the plight of the woman in Indian or any other culture. Read more
