Mysuru, June 11:- After many successful shows, Ranga Vartula theatre team stages 53rd special show of its national-award-winning theatre production ‘Rabdi,’ which is an adaptation of Naushil Mehta’s Hindi short play at Kiru Rangamandira, Rangayana, here on June 15.
Rabdi was staged across the United States of America with 17 full-house shows and was performed at many prestigious theatre festivals.
Written by Nithish Sridhar and Hemalatha Lokesh and directed by Nithish Sridhar, the play ‘Rabdi’ revolves around Saavantri and her mentally retarded child. Dreams of a better future for her child remain unfulfilled, yet Saavantri does not lose hope. She offers to become a surrogate mother for an IT couple in return for money to enrol her child to a special school. Rabdi deals with motherhood, love, aspirations and priorities individuals make in their lives, touching upon major societal issues, solutions and trading of human emotions for personal benefits. Will Saavantri be able to give up ‘her’ second child or does her motherly love come in the way….??? (MR)
