Three plays! Two theatres! It’s going to be great! THE DISPLACED HINDU GODS TRILOGY contains three individual plays based loosely around the Hindu trinity of Brahma the creator, Vishnu the protector, and Shiva the destroyer. THE CHRONICLES OF KALKI and SHIV both take place in the Plaza Theatre, while BRAHMAN/I: A ONE HIJRA STAND-UP COMEDY SHOW will be performed in the Black Box. The two theatres share the same lobby, where you can find concessions, our lobby bookstore, and much more. All three plays are performed separately, but if you want to settle in for a grand theatrical experience, join us on a marathon weekend day and see them all!
The trilogy is made up of three plays, and each play counts as one show. One ticket to each show is included with your Company Card.
There is! Join us on a Saturday or Sunday and buy a “marathon” ticket to see all three shows in one day at a discounted price.
You can see them in any order. Each part of the trilogy is an independent piece with its own story. That being said, there are a variety of Easter eggs sprinkled throughout the trilogy and we encourage you to see all three to join in on the fun.
Unfortunately, we can’t make that decision for you. Every child has a different level of maturity, and every parent has a different set of boundaries for what their child is ready to experience. That being said, with regards to the 8-year-old: probably not. The 13-year-old is right on the bubble; it would take a very mature 13-year-old to handle the content. On the other hand, some of the characters in the play are almost that young. As for the 17-year-old: again, we can’t speak for everyone, but we’d be willing to bet that THE DISPLACED HINDU GODS doesn’t contain anything he or she hasn’t heard before, although perhaps not on stage. We’re aware that language on the stage has a different impact than it does on the playground. Each piece has a different tone and deals with different themes. You might find that one piece seems to be more appropriate for your child than another. Take a look at our show synopses here for a better understanding of each play.[/accordions]
