Hayavadana. Girish Karnad. In Association with Why Not Theatre.

BUY NOW

Love is imperfect, identity can be deceiving, and perfection is dangerous. Padmini is in love with two friends, Devadatta, a poet, and Kapila, a blacksmith, but the familiar love triangle is turned upside down when the men’s bodies are mysteriously switched. One of India’s most popular plays of the 20th Century, Hayavadana reinvents an iconic myth into a powerful search for wholeness.

Audiences enjoy unlimited access to the audio drama from the premiere date until June 30, 2021. You will receive an email on May 19 with a link to log into your account and listen to an embedded audio file through your computer or device. To purchase a Passport Subscription and enjoy all eight productions, CLICK HERE.

Complimentary access for Front Line Workers  and members of our Free 25 and Under program sponsored by Sun Life. 


COMING SOON: CBC IDEAS - INDIA indepth Podcast (Premieres May 19)
