The Play

First premiered at Shakespeare’s Globe in London, Piya Behrupiya is an award-winning Hindi translation of Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night, filled with a cast of unforgettable characters. Amidst the household of Olivia, two campaigns are being quietly waged: one by Duke Orsino against the indifferent heart of Olivia; the other by an alliance of servants and hangers-on against the high-handedness of her steward Malvolio. When Orsino engages the crossdressed Viola to plead with Olivia on his behalf, a bittersweet chain of events follows. Part of the 2016 Eye On India festival, the production combines cruelty with high comedy and the pangs of unrequited love with some of the subtlest poetry and most exquisite songs Shakespeare wrote. Performed in Hindi with projected English translation.
